This is not exactly a major problem, but rather annoying. When one downloads a file, a progress bar immediately shows up and the "downloaded" portion begins counting from 0 MB. This gets slowly fill up until the file is completely downloaded. However, in my laptop, for files smaller than 5MB, I noticed that the download does not begin at 0 MB and then slowly increases until the file download is finished. Rather, the file shows up in the download list as already completed when the file has already finished downloading (in my Chrome), so I have no idea how long the file will download. This gets to be a problem when I use IDM, since the time that the IDM sends requests to the site to download the file is limited, and IDM download expires when the time passes and the file does not begin downloading yet.


But it only happens to files smaller than 5MB. For files larger than that, the download goes on as usual.

Could it be that the system files related to networking have issues?
