..could that be utilized in this instance as well?
Once SP3 completes please try the download again and let me know. There are several internet related upgrades in SP3 that should improve the internet experience.
Does the friend have a computer with XP on it?
although my friend made me aware of a compression device for MP3 files which allows for about 4 times the number of songs on a single disk...
Do they have an XP Home install disk?
Do they have a DVD writer on their machine or even better an external DVD writer?

.....just accessed Event Viewer; here's messages from attempt to install SP# and subsequent interruption:
'Warning: Printer Driver Microsoft XPS Document Writer for Windows NT x86 Version-3 was added or updated. Files:- %4.
Error: The MCSTRM service failed to start due to the following error:
The system cannot find the file specified.'
.....oh, wait a minute - repeated attempts to raise the installation window resulted in a message that the updates HAVE been downloaded and automatically installed at 3 tomorrow morning (?)

Click Start >> Control Panel >> User Accounts
In the Pick a Task... select Create a new account
In Name the new account type in a name you will want to use if we have to delete the old account later, then click Next
In Pick an account type select Computer administrator and then Create Account
Then once it is created reboot and go into the new account and try to download.

Just a small klitch in the settings for the internet possibly but this creating a new account came from an internet expert here.
CC - any thoughts on what's blocking the downloading and saving though?

as I said in my last posting, got NOWHERE with the alternative Test account previously created some time ago - same result.
I understand the the current user account has Administrative privileges, but the thought is that the user account may be having issues.We're all just looking to find a way to get this machine to do what you need it to do, so please do try creating a new account with Administrative privileges and see if it improves the download issue.
