Hi all,
I keep getting this problem over and over.

When I download a game/program/software etc and install it, it works great until I exit the downloaded program to return and re-use the program.

When I return to use my downloaded game/program/software etc and it gives me the SEND Microsoft ERROR REPORT on mostly all the files i have downloaded.
I check the 200mb file that I have downloaded and it says it is only 55kb and the program does not work no more..that goes on with pretty much all programs/software that I download.
it gets frustrating to keep downloading the same program over and over.

any suggestions?

Thank You

I use XP home

Hi Thanks,
I get them from Yahoo,Limewire, Big Fish,Tucows etc
I run spybot and all is good. no malware/virus etc.

its just the programs stop functioning after one use.
i would say about 95% of them die after one use.

Hello kaffa

Thanks for that, in regards to Limewire we cannot help as this is against our Terms Of Use.
