Solved Downloads always fail Windows 7

Specs: Windows 7 64 BIT (Ultimate), AMD FX6300 // 8 GB DDR3 (2100 mhz) Running @ 1800 MHZ
OK I really could do with some help with this annoying problem

I have tried alot of different things already suggested with no luck

This include's clearing temp files, restting winsock, rebooting rooter, checking DNS servers.....

Note: the problem is as stated there is absoloutley no issue with the actual connection dropping, P2P services also have no issue, but downloading with any browser from any download service including URL's such as nvidia driver and Microsoft, nearly always fail sometimes depending on the File hosting sites access conditions and parameters, pausing then resuming may continue the download untill it freezes again, though some times it just drops the download speed drops to 0 then message "an unexpected network error has occured"

This though I think is rather significant, I have no suh problems with a much older slower laptop running win XP running from the same router/Hub with virtually the same IP address, I saw on a forum I read that it maybe because downlaods are too quick and Net-limiter may be able to resolve this, however I have pretty much ruled that out because some downloading host sites have a very limited download speed, and as well I didn't really see a logic to his reasoning, maybe you do?

I am running Win 7 Pro sp1 through an ethernet connection , It really does seem to me like it is some kind of configuration issue because of the laptop not having any problem, but so far I have no idea how to resolve it

thx

I had a similar issue when i had Windows XP, downloads would start, then freeze then fail, as i only every used IE i never figured out if this was browser related or not. What i did to fix it was.

Change my firewall settings in ZoneAlarm to be a little less strict, the newer version of ZA doesnt require you change anything, i think they updated this which resolved the issue. What firewall do you use

Also another thing i can suggest is to do the following

Control Panel
Internet Options
Advanced Tab
Click on 'Restore advanced settings'
click on 'Reset'

I think i performed these actions too in conjunction with messing with my firewall settings and it seemed to fix the issue.

Hope this helps

please let us know

Have you tried an alternative browser? If not, try one just to see if this problem is browser related.

It could be worth running these two freebies which focus on browser related malware:


AdwCleaner:
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Cleaning" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
(blue Download button near top - not anything else on the page).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

If either find anything please paste the associated log(s) on here.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

THx for the reply, however I have already tried that with no success, If you have any other ideas please let me know but allowing access and using different browsers among my first courses of action
I have also used adware cleaner and many other pest controls especially malwarebytes with no success, there is nothing wrong with my connection speed or processing speed the problem is very specific, it is just downloads from any URl I think using the TCP/IP protocol which are being affected
Would you know what "tunneling" is when reffered to networking, I was reading something about this whilst trying to diagnose the problem, and think it may be beneficial to find out more

Thx for your helps and please don't hesitate to respond if you have any other advice which may be helpfull

Just a suggestion, if you have an AntiVirus and Firewall, can you please specify what they are. Then try to disable them both and download something. Sometimes AV applications scan downloads and can block them if they are deemed unsafe.

So just to clarify

You have done as suggested in #1
reset
and restore

you have also done as suggested in #2
and tried another browser?

Reading on a few forums its seems that there are a lot of related issues caused by AVAST antivirus and BitDefender.

The suggestion seems to be disabling them and testing.

I would suggest disabling any AV you have currently and try to download something at least that way we can narrow the possibilities down.
