Hello all, hopefully im posting in the right place. I am haveing problems with my computer not wanting to download anything. It will start downloads as usual then part of the way through it will stop progressing. The little paper going into the folder is still going but no change in time left or anything. Also if i try to watch videos they will play part way then just freeze. I have cable internet and just recently started haveing these problems. Any advice would be great.
thanks Aaron

Hello biggA,

Do you download with IE or FF ? Do you clean the cache regularly?

Welcome to BC
You are posting in 4 separate forums, mostly concerning the same problem(s). All this does is cause confusion for both you and the people trying to help you. I merged your 2 post in the Anti-virus protection methods and I'm closing your other 2. When you have solved the problems in your original thread and feel you still need to address the other 2, PM me and I will be happy to reopen them

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
Do not send me PMs with problems that should be posted in the forums. Keep it in the forums, so everyone benefits
