I can't seem to download any files since I upgraded to Windows 7. I have tried several fixes and all that comes up is a Microsoft file unknown page. Any idea on how to fix this? I have downloaded most drivers.

What files are you having issues with?

All files?

Documents?

Executable files?

The more information you provide the better we can assist you.

And you just installed a fresh copy of Windows?

What did you upgrade from?

I upgraded from my microsoft copy of Windows 7, did a custom install to fix a virus. Had to start from scratch. I know some file is missing to allow downloads. I did a driver update from the microsoft site, but this is still a problem.

So you had a virus and did an upgrade? That is not the proper way to fix things. You may just have to wipe the entire drive and do a clean installation.

Everything else I found and got up and running. This is the only thing missing. Has to be an answer without going to a rip off shop. Tell you what, I will never buy Microsoft again. Even before all of this happened they want so much money, nothing comes with it anymore. Guess I have to feed someone in Africa instead of ourselves.

What virus did you think you have, and what version of Windows 7 do you have now?

When you have a virus and just upgrade the OS, you are asking for trouble. Backup your data and reinstall Windows 7 fresh, and save yourself a ton of time and agony.
