Large Downloads Fail

Beginning this morning, I have been unable to download large files regardless of which browser I use - Chrome, IE, Firefox. For example, while testing this issue on ThinkBroadband, I am able to download the 50 MB test file without any problems. However, every time I try to download the 100 MB test file, it stops at 65.3 MB. Every time I try to download the 200 MB test file, it stops at 38.2 MB. Any ideas?

PS - Sorry if this is the wrong forum. Could not figure out which was the best option.

Hi happyrock. Yes, it still continues. Have isolated the problem somewhat. I know that it is not a problem with my ISP or modem. Also, all works fine in safe mode with networking. Did a virus check and a malware check and restored to a previous point in my system to no avail. As soon as I can get enough time, I'll go through each of my startup programs one by one, as I am sure one must be the culprit. The issue is happening across the board but I have been using the following site as a test: http://www.thinkbroa...m/download.html

I know it did not do anything to my system (it said everything looked good, by the way) but all of the sudden it is working without any problems. Wow. I wish I had an explanation in case it happens again to me or someone else but I'll take the gift... thanks for your help!
