I am at the point where i am seriously getting frustrated. I have looked into every which way i know to stop this error..it happens with every file i try to dl. happens in both IE 6 & 7 and also FF. I had the nVidia firewall installed and took it off..i now have zone alarm suite. i have tried even turning off ZA to see if it would help anything but again no avail. I also tried everything on this page posted here and this page Why do i get NSIS Error again to no avail. the only thing it does now is not scroll smoothly. my screen will now flash and it will be down a few lines. so i am highly annoyed. Any help that you could provide me at this point would be very much appreciated.
