got a problem here and I'm not sure of the root cause. Two events which may or may not be relevant to the problem that took place around the same time a)he installation of Internet Explorer 8 2)The adding of a router so we could have a wireless connection to laptops in the house.
The problem is now that when you go to download something it will reach a certain percentage, and just stop. Try again and you may get a different percentage. Try it say 10 times, and it might eventually download it. The PC never did this before. The size of the file seems to make little difference either.
Another thing it's affecting - video streaming on sites such as Youtube for example. Videos will only load a certain way then just stop.
I ran various virus checks and spyware removal tools, but the problem remains.
Any suggestions? I know 'get rid of IE' may be one but I'd like to avoid this if possible as its a shared PC and everyone likes what they are use to (=scared of change).
Hope you can help,
