Corrupt Files

by frusterated / January 27, 2008 5:16 AM PST

I have tried downloading Photoscape several times and am frusterated. I keep getting premature finishes and corrupt files. I am working off of a Windows 2000 on a Dell Latitude made in 1998 I think. Is there anything that I can do to correct this problem?

I have tried downloading Download Manager as suggested to some others but that has corrupted files in it, therefore it wont let me download. I also am on dial-up.

Have tried for 2 months to download! I keep getting after about 30-40% downloaded(I am on dial-up), that file invalid or corrupt. Have tried at off-peak hours also. CNET only gives me a generic generated answer-same answer each time. On Windows XP.

The other method.

Get a friend to download it to CDR, USB memory stick and hand it to you.

I am sort of glad it is not just me. The last time I tried was the end of January. I wish that companies would think a little bit of thase that are forced to use dial-up. Not everyone can get highspeed.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
