Thanks in advance.

This problem materialized a few months ago and I know of no changes that would explain what has happened. I have a Linkys wireless G router (WRT 54g v5) and I'm using Norton Internet Security.

Downloads stall, after starting. For instance, app updates downloaded through iTunes start, then the progress bar stops moving. I can "force" the download by pausing and then resuming. I have the same trouble downloading other items, but the Norton updates seem to be coming through.

The error message is "network timed out"

As an experiment, I just tried to download iTunes through Windows Explorer, with a good quality cable connection (at least according to the HP monitor), and the download starts off normally, then the download speed keeps slowing to single digit kb per second. (Apple is a trusted site

I also tried to download from HP, and it was downloading at a regular rate.

For a Flashplayer update, through Adobe Download Manager, the download stalled at 32.5% for about 3 minute, then th same at 79%.

Sooo...it seems that iTunes is the only problem...in which case, I would uninstall iTunes completely...run chkdsk /r, then reinstall the latest version of iTunes.

IMO, Adobe Download Manager is not necessary and may be contributing to your problems. I would uninstall it and keep it so.

You do not need it to update Flash Player, see Various Links

Except that downloading the iTunes program from Apple stalled. That wasn't a download through iTunes.

Same fix?
