Windows 7: Can't download anything in Windos 7 RC using FF or IE

07 Jul 2009   #11

Windows 7 RC (7100)

This was a clean install. I installed it right away on my new laptop (well i configured vista used the internet and then installed 7 rc)
I checked 32 bit even though my system is a 64 bit and had vista 64 bit before. But I haven't had any problems at all till now of course

I was not able to download zinio reader ( a digital magazine service) but I put it on a thumb drive, and installed, and I was suprisingly able to download magazines within the service they're like 5-10 mb files. I'm assuming opera will work but not sure.

Apparently something hit the installation there if FireFox won't download anything either as well as IE. The online magazine may or may not require that you log in with IE while most often any browser will do. Certain things however are based more for IE.

Since the repair install on the host drive was made right after the initial installation none of those problems have been seen here. The 32bit beta while IE 8 was still in beta saw a few problems while the RCs have the finished version included suggesting a repair install would clear this up for you.

Have you tried reseting IE to facotory default settings? on IE, goto tools->internet options->advanced->Reset internet explorer settings on the bottom.

Also for troubleshooting purposes, get a download manager such as IDM ( Internet Download Manager ) and see if you can download anything with it. GetRight, Download accelerator works as well, but IDM is my favourite.

If you made any changes to the IE settings right before the problems came up the defaults should snap you back if that was the case where one or two things are blocking downloads. But that's not the case is it?

For something actually having trashed both IE and FireFox preventing downloads with a totally separate browser you then have to start looking at Windows settings(Win firewall, UAC) since this has gone past IE alone.

Lately someone asked for help when a game actually trashed IE 7 on Vista which will end up needing a repair install as well in order to replace the default browser included in Vista. A download of IE 8 didn't help any.

Windows 7 Ultimate Build 7600

I'm using windows 7 build 7600. It works fine for me, until i found out about this problem. I can't download anything. If I download, it will turns out bad or corrupted. I've tried using various softwares, with or without accelerator, and the results are all the same. Somebody suggest me to change the netsh command. I've done that, and still no change. Can anyone helps me on this?
