Please someone help me, everytime I try to download something the meter that shows the download occuring it stops at 99 % complete and it then will freeze?

Everytime someone sends me a email with an attachment and I click on it to download, it begins to download and it stops at 99% and the it will freeze.

What browser are you using? Also do you have any firewalls installed?

I use Windows XP, and I don't know if I use a firewall? How do I check.

On my desktop, I have ATF cleaner, and Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, SUPERAntiSpyware,

What antivirus are you running, those mentioned are for Malware, not virus's.
Do you use Internet Explorer (what version if you do) or Firefox or what to browse the internet?

I have a icon on the bottom right hand corner that tells me that I have updates ready to install, and when I click on it the updates ty to get installed, then when it's all done it says: The following updates were not installed, security update for SQL server 2005 service Pack 3 (KB970892)

Then I close the box, does this have anything to do with my download problem?

no i dont think it will have anything to do with the problem, you could try Firefox and see if you can download a file.

A freeze at 99% indicates that whatever anti-virus is there is failing to properly scan the download, essentially stopping it in its tracks. I doubt the browser is the problem.

There is a free utility that will check for security programs, but I can't remember the name of it...

Try disabling all of your anti virus/malware programs and downloading a simple ~5MB file.
