problem downloading files


Recommended Posts


I have a strange problem: my internet browsers sometimes crash when I'm trying to download files. I have Opera and Firefox (latest versions).

The probability to crash is about 20..30%. Sometimes it does the same when I try to download again exactly in the same conditions, sometimes not. Sometimes the download works fine in the other browser, sometimes not.

Opera just closes when I click on Save. Firefox shows a crash report.

This problem appeared a few weeks ago.

I don't think it's from a virus (my Eset Nod32 Antivirus says nothing).

OS is Windows XP SP3 x86 with latest updates.

I thought that the problem was from OS and I reinstall it a few days ago. No change.

I checked and fixed the errors (small) with partitions, nu change.

I didn't think that the problem was from RAM and I checked it when I bought it (a year ago) but I checked again, no problems found.

What could be the cause..?

Thank you for any idea.

Thank you but I've found the problem: Eset Nod32 5. Seems that it doesn't help to just deactivate it, you have to uninstall it completely. Now all is ok (except that I don't have antivirus protection anymore) :rolleyes:
