Whenever I try to download something, whether its a small file or a large file, it will go for a couple seconds, then stop. I tried using a 3rd party download manager and that didnt help.

Its very annoying, anyone know how to fix it?

This looks like a job for your task manager. before you start a download right click the tray and open task manager and set it to "running processes" start the download and see what processes are running, make a list, when the download fails refresh the task manager and compare the two lists. Also check to see if your CPU usage changes when the download fails. This should provide you with some clues.

Another thing is both the Windows download and the P-P programs use the javaw.exe program, and there is usually more than one version of javaw.exe in your machine. You JRE has one, so does Windows. Your firewall(s) may be blocking one of these. :tazz:
