XP internet problem



Hello. i am running XP pro and i have a 750 athlon with a geforce 2 mx 400 and since i have installled XP i cant download anything from the internet , it will bring the window up but it just sits there till it says it cant contact the server i have tried everything including messing with the internet settings so many different ways , my xp firewall is NOT on and i give up and was wandering if someone else had an idea what wrong, oh yeah, i am using AOL and i have checked my settings on that and that isnt it either,

Try this, right click on the link and choose "Save Target As..." If the link is a dead one you won't be able to download a file from it that doesn't exist... If it comes back with a file to download just select a spot to download it to.

Also, check this setting in IE: Tools> Internet Options> 'Security' tab> "Custom Level" button. Scroll down to the download section and make sure file download is enabled.


i tried all that it does it for every site i go to, it just says getting file information and then it says cant contact the site. My internet setting enable downloading, trying what you told me doesnt work either, any other suggestions. i am stumped


Just curious, but are you logged in as an administrator?

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
