Windows 7: all downloads stop after a few seconds

I've tried the same download both from Chrome and IE, both didn't work. Also an exe on my PC trying to download Java for Chrome aborts. Also the update from Spybot aborts (only for the large file). So doens't matter where I initiate a download, they all fail after a couple of seconds. So I don't think cleaning up IE will be of any help. Shorter downloads work fine (like Norton liveupdate who fetches the downloads very fast).

Hi,
The only thing I can come up with is test using a new administrator account ?

This just verifies that a fresh install is best and immediately make a system image even before you download a security suite,
Cheers.

Tried it with a new admin account, same errors. I'm really at the end of my options now, but re-installing Windows7 is such a hassle, not looking forward to it.

Please don't take this wrong but you started this thread a week ago, telling that this had been going on for weeks. Compared to that, a fresh install would have been a lot faster and simpler solution.

I agree with Kari
You best bet is a fresh install with home premium at 69.99 at TigerDirect your just wasting time now,
Your windows user is corrupted by no telling what ?

Since a Clean Install is the suggested fix (and yes, ASC is a culprit in the original problem, even if you use it on other PCs with no problems...yet), try this Fixit. Are the other working PCs also Vista or newer?

It takes much longer than expected to download an e-mail message from a POP3 server in Outlook 2007 or in Outlook 2010

I would also suspect Norton, does it have a link scanner? If so, can the scanner be disabled? You also mention not being able to connect in Safe Mode with Networking due to proxy issues? It's possible these proxies are the cause, can you connect without proxy as a test?

The PC with the problem is working on Windows 7, the other are working on Windows XP, Windows 7 and Windows 8. The problem is not related to mail, it is related to downloading games, Java updates etc, each download taking longer then a couple of seconds aborts. Regards, Mark

I know it isn't a mail issue, but the settings are the same. Perhaps not the fix, but it would still be worth trying. A Guy

[QUOTE=Layback Bear;2730175]Welcome to the Forum.
The good news is your computer can be fixed.
The bad news; once you have use Advanced System Care it just might take a Clean Install.
Some will think this method is extreme so hang around for more ideas.

Clean Install Windows 7

It's been 2 weeks. Have you tried this yet.
