Im using Windows 2000 5.0 build 2195, service pack 4
Physical memory available 261,616k
When I try and download AdAware or files received via hotmail & gmail, sometimes it gets about 10% done then stops, sometimes it doesnt start at all.
Im using firefox and ie6
Ive cleared the cache for both, Im allowing 500mb for tempory files (but I've deleted all those), I have 2gb free on my C drive.
I suspect I might not have write rights to my documents&settings/temp file where this stuff would go whilst it was downloading (maybe?) - I've gone into properties for Administrator etc under C:\documents & settings and checked I had full write/read control over everything but thats when I stop pretending I know what I'm doing.
Thanks for helping, if you can!
ps I can upload large files easily. Youtube and emule also stream/download files no problem.
pps I have unlimited broadband.
