I guess this is in the right place. When I download a file from the internet it won't fully finish, it'll get around a forth and stop downloading. And after a short while on the internet I get kicked off, My internet service provider is Netscape.

What speed and type of connection are you using? How long has this been going on? How close to capacity are you on your hard drive, and how much RAM do you have?

I really don't know what's wrong. You might check your Network Connection settings and see if you accidentally have something set to disconnect at a certain point or after a certain time period. There's always the option of running a full error check and just making sure everything is okay with the hard drive, but you did say the machine is new. And my FAVORITE option: Get high-speed! Most companies have made DSL as inexpensive as dial-up (if it's available to you). Of course cable is an option, too. With broadband, your file will be downloaded before the computer has a chance to disconnect!

Kinda. I was running 98 and decided to upgrade to XP. Of course I bought the full version of Windows XP because I didn't have my 98 where I could find it.

Did XP not come pre-loaded on your new computer? Maybe I'm confused...
