    Try to post which browser you are using: Give the name of some specific executable files not downloading. Maybe your machine needs a big shot of maintenence, defragging, error checking, registry repair, See if "CCleaner" will install...if so ...use it. Also, another common thing that should be done is checking ram (run it one stick at a time) and try your download. You also need to know that your CPU is not getting too hot. A common cause of freezing. There's so many possibilities...G' Lck.
