Downloading Stopping

I am new to this group & I am not sure if this is the correct forum. However when I download a program it goes quickly until it gets to about 95% then the message 'just a few more seconds', but it almost never completes the download.

I am on cable broadband Virgin, OS Windows 7 ultimate.
