Downloading and Win 7 64

So i buy Win 7 64 pro, get a rapidshare account and cant seem to download. I tried firefox, Chrome, Opera, IE8 x64, and Mozzilla Minefield. Everytime i start a download it gets a hundred or so bytes, the it looses all conectivity and times out. Has anyone else had a problem with it doing this, and is there any suggestions that might help?

Some places will download, some wont. rapidshare is one of them. it's starting to look like a lottery. the download will start and go for a few hundred k and then loose the connection slowly. its not our server because i used my account on one of our work computers with xp pro and it downloaded 9.64 gigs just fine. Could it be a 64 bit problem or is it just windows 7? There is all that UAC stuff and i thought i had turned it all off, i was wondering if that could be it as well.
