So i cant download anything it just freezes up. i tried using opera and the speed started off good and then it went down and down. Then it froze again. can anyone help me with this problem. so i can start downloading again.

    describe FREEZE: does it just stop downloading OR does the browser stop
    responding to any clicks?

    couple of thoughts. if you're DL via some BitTorrent, then you've just swamped
    the ISP and they are controlling the thruput. do you have any idea of how big
    the file is and how far you are into it when it STALLS?
    Are you using some kind of download manager?
