Whenever I download something it takes forever or it just stops. Sometimes it only goes to 2% and then it stops, or it will take so long to get to like 90% and then it stops. Can someone tell me why?

Try Updating The Drivers for your modem
If you are on dial up, It could be cuting out. I would ring your provider.
IF Broadband you might have a bad line. I would ring your provider.
Also you ISP could not be alowing downloads.

Alright I tried my download.. it's still very slow and stops whenever it feels like it. This particular download is a game and it's 400mb..but I don't think the size matters... I guess we'll have to try something else :whistling:
