I've got a Hp computer, with windows 8 installed.
I am unsure if this was the correct place to post this, but i need some help badly.

The computer refuses to download anything at all, I do not recieve any errormessages.
The download simply doesnt happen, sometimes i get a loading window, that never loads, othertimes it just doesnt pop up at all.
And nothing in the downloads folder, I've tried via google chrome, Firefox and IE, Still the same.

Ive checked throught the internet settings, and the antivirus programs,
and everything looks as it should.

Plowed through about a million "forum threads" with the similar problem, none of the sollutions have helped.

I'm posetively desperate, I cant acess anything via download, no updates, no games and no workrelated things.

So I hope i can find help here.

What AV protection do you have.

That's a strange issue..


My guess would be that antivirus software is blocking it.
