You might won't to look at this thread, about Yahoo
Good Luck. gmp
I have xp, and could download anything. Until about a year ago. I guess I changed something, cause now it won't download yahoo messenger (8Mb). It stops when it gets to about 2 Mb. Then the download indicator doesn't show any more percentage downloaded, or the downloaded size just stops. I can't use download programs, cause Yahoo makes me connect directly to their site, and won't let me use them. I downloaded the original program, a couple years ago, but can't upgrade. I've noticed this same thing when I download large video or other large files, like from kazaa or winmx. I did a WinXP fix reinstall, but the problem remained. Is there a file or setting in Winxp that relates to this that I can check or change?
I'm scared to just reformat the drive, cause if the problem remains, then I'll never get ANY yahoo messenger or other large files again.
