    Ok, this has started happening recently and i have absolutely no idea why it does what it does. I go to a website to download a file, i start the download, and every it starts, the name of the file that's downloading to my hard drive is missing the first two letters of the official file name from the website. Look in the attatchment to see what i mean.

    What happens when you save and download the file? Does it complete the download? Can you open the file in winzip?

    the download completes and program/file opens fine. just that it get's annoying when i download a file named say HL1110.exe and it automatically saves it as 1110.exe. Not sure why it does that

    just manually type in the file name. does that work? still it would be quite annoying to have to do that all of the time.
