Welcome
The firs part is easy
Just type windows live in search, when it pops up, just right click and send to documents. Then drag to desktop.
Im working on the second part now.

For the second, see if an sfc does the trick
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

HOWEVER
Before doing anything, run a full updated virus scan
If you can download and run a full scan with malwarebytes.
The fact that you cannot download may indicate a virus or malware.

I'll use any that work please
I Cant get any to work.. its just too complicted

i tried 'internet download manager' but it didn twork.. and now there are remnants of it stuck in my OS, even after uninstalling.. im very annoyed about that.

I'm now trying flashget, and flashgot..
but its all to difficult

the little tutorials arent clear enuff
and im basically stuck..

I subscribe to 'wupload' so i need a download manager that can intergrate wupload into it.. and i need to know how to do it...
im getting nowhere fast
thanks
