Yeah, I have done alot of sp3 installs/uninstalls and stuff like that, so I have had various issues but I have fixed them all problems I had except for this one.
I am downloading it directly from my router, but like I said, I have no problems with other PC's on my home network, and yes I have tried Firefox as well, and I get the same issue, but I have not tried Firefox on the other PC's, just IE6 and IE7 and they work fine, just not on this PC.
So, I have a feeling there is something wrong with my Windows installation itself.
Here is what I have doen so far:
Uninstalled SP3, still same problem
Reinstalled SP3....same problem
Installed SP2 after I uninstalled SP3 to see if it would replace some broken files..didn't work.
Did a repair of XP with the XP CD (not and in-place install, as that would have made me have to reinstall all of my programs, but may have corrected the problem)
Uninstalled all updates lol and then reinstalled them, and then SP2 and then SP3, checking each time if the problem was solved, but it never was.
I use Tuneup Utilities and I may have somehwere along the way deleted some with that as well, not sure.
Um...I will try some of the scans, but I had SpyBot and Avast the whole time so I doubt that I am infected, however, I had been infected once about 2 months ago when I installed something I downloaded, so maybe something went wrong then too...hard to say...I mean, I know if I reformat, it will be gone, but I have too many programs installed to want to do that and it's such an insignificant problem, not even worth it, I was just hoping someone might have an idea here that I could try to get it to download again...maybe like a registry setting or re-registering a .dll er something
Pain in the butt!
Anyway, thanks for the reply.
