I can't download anything!

April 5, 2011 at 20:46:05
Specs: Windows 18.08.2009

I can't download anything! Whenever it tries to download something it looks normal right till the end then it closes and the download is nowhere on the computer. It almost seams like a security measure gone wrong and I can't find the problem. Some people told me to download Firefox to get around the problem but I couldn't download it, What do I do?

ok,i think the browser is downloading these files in an unknown location.to fix this download "Orbit Downloader" it asks you were to download your files so u can choose a place you want and it speeds up your downloads about 3 times.Go here to download orbit downloader: http://www.orbitdownloader.com/

After downloading it and installing when you click something you want to download the browser asks you to save the file or download by orbit downloader.Choose download by orbit downloader.

it might(mostly) be downloading to Temp
To Goto Temp

click on start then init click on run and in run type %TEMP% and press ok.Then the temp folder will popup.Check if your downloads are there.If they are there download firexox because it 4 times faster than IE.and install orbit too.Then download malwarebytes antimalware and run a scan to find out if there is a virus in your pc(might be).Then download a good antivirus antimalware program like AVAST,AVG and Microsoft Security Essentials.

Alright so it still downloads viruses perfectly but it wont download anything useful like songs or antivirus programs. Any other suggestions? And keep in mind the fact that I cant download Firefox.

download firefox on another computer,put it on a pen drive and install it on yours.and try to repair windows is you have a win xp cd.the repair option comes right after the EULA were it tells you to press F8 to agree.The repair wont destroy any of your files or change them.I've tried(a dozen times over).

Alright I somehow updated the internet and now it tells me why things aren't downloading. For every single thing including AVG Antivirus it says that it contains a virus and deleats it. What do I do now?
