  1. hope this is in the right place?

    I download a lot of pics off the internet and all the sudden nothing downloads I am running XP, with firefox, use a GIG, netgear network card, and have got a Meg download, but all the sudden nothing is downloading. Could someone tell me how to fix this?

    From using the Internet for a while, downloading and browsing, you can get a lot of temporary files, that accumulate and can slow or even stop your system.
    Please download (ironically) and run CCleaner, then try again.

    ok, kimsland, I will try that, but I already have it downloaded, the last time I ran that due to my own stupidity I screwed up the OS, so I have never ran it again.

    Thanks

    Well I hope it's reasonably current version
    But either way, it'll remove all the built up junk.

    You may want to defrag after that too. Probably all red by now.

    Did you restart your system?

    Did it work ok afterwards?

    Was there anything else being downloaded in the background while you were doing this?
