Hi ppl, I have a strange problem when trying to download files using Internet Explorer 6. But first a bit of background info on my specs: I have 2 PCs with the same issue, one is a laptop and other desktop: They both have up to the minute latest Windows XP updates including all security updates (downloaded form microsoft windows update) and latest drivers and everything else. On software side they 2 apps they both have installed is Seek & Destroy (spyware killer) and ZoneAlarm Security Suite (Retail). I do now have any illegal software etc... that may have emmited a virus. Now for the problem, when I try to download files any files .exe, .zip, .wave or naything else under the earths sun. It starts and gets to 40-50 KB and stops as if the download has completed so It partially downloads the files then stops whyyyyy. This happens on every files great and small. I have tried to remove S&D and ZoneAlarm and disable all the IE Add-ons (most of them are generic) and no go. I have reimaged the desktop PC and found that it worked then after a few days same issue. I cannot pinpoint where and why???? The only conclusion I can come up with is if MS has screwed up one of its updates but then everyone on the globe would have the same problem. Downloading in Firefox is fine and works well. Guys this is driving me absolutely crazy I don't even use IE6 that much but the sheer fact that the problem is there and I cannot figure ir out is making me lose sleep! Could it be spyware, virus, adware, trojan or software corruption I don't know, please please give me some assistance!
