I am having downloading issues with programs.
To elaborate or give examples:
I was able to download smartesi webinstall, it is an executable file that will download more files, depending on my installation settings, to install SMART products, which is for tablets.
Yet, When I clicked to search for the newest updates, it said it couldn't connect.
Also, I was able to download the installer for cygwin from http://www.cygwin.com/, but when I click for it to open for mirror sites, the installer could not access them. I was able to access the mirror sites through from the internet browswer.
I read on forums, (for cygwin) that it may be a firewall preventing it from accessing the mirror sites, I turned off my firewall and I still can't access the mirror sites through the installer. I have opened the installers through Administrator and still cannot access the mirror sites, However, I was able to access the mirror sites if I used a virtual desktop on Virtual PC. It downloaded the installer, accessed the mirror sites and downloaded the files needed.
Hopefully someone can guide me through the process on how to repair/fix/resolve this issue I am having.
I am using a Windows 7 x64 PC. Home Premium.
32bit and 64 bit installers have same issue.
Internet Explorer settings is "automaticlly detect settings"
If I repeat the process, downloading installer and have it access the mirror sites, it works on a different laptop that is connected to the same wifi network.
There isn't anything suspcious in my host file.
Windows Update works and I am able to log into Yahoo Messenger
