Windows vista home premium- Download problems- ie8-Norton


I have a Toshiba Satellite A200 1AH. I reinstalled the vista on my computer and I have several problems. I am not able to download programs to my computer. I have internet explorer 8 and norton security as the virus program. I already checked the ie8 security part andbrought the security levels to medium-high or medium. I also checked norton antivirus and allowed it to make downloads and cloes the firewall. Closed the pop-up blocker. I do not know what else can be done. I need help about this issue because it seems a bit more complicated than I think it is... When I try to download it says that the object can not be downloaded etc.

Another problem I faced is I am not able to use the messenger (windows live)

Thank you
