Windows 7: Downloads Not Starting or Stalling at 99%

13 Jan 2016   #1

Win 7 Professional 64 bit
Downloads Not Starting or Stalling at 99%


So I've been having this problem for over a month now. For many files that I try to download, they either don't start downloading or they stall at 99%

Torrent downloads work fine, even random files also download properly. When I try to download a large file either normally or using a download manager, it would download for like 800-900 mb and stop just when it has about a few kbs or about a couple of Mbs left to go.

I have tried downloading in Safe Mode with Networking and even on different computers, but they all have the same problem.

What could be going wrong here?

Please advise
