about the type of connection, which browser, or the computer, I'll write that I don't have a clue. Read the instructions typed in red above the subject title.

Sorry. My computer uses a dial up connection. I have IE7,Opera and Avant Browsers. My computer is a Northgate Innovations LP,250GB hard drive,1.8 GHz AMD Athlon XP 2500 + proc and 1.2GB of RAM. Hope this helps.

Since your on a dialup connection, why not try a download manager, like this one: It's free and since you have no problems with filehippo you can get it there. Don't know why cnet is slow(er), but this should help regardless.
Good luck,

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?
