May be you have installed some firewall or antivirus which are blocking your downloads. Check that first.

My computer won't let me download anything


Most computer users can readily download files from the
Internet with no issue.


Yet, you may experience an error that will not allow you to
download anything from the Internet. Generally, you can readily resolve this
issue with some simple troubleshooting.

Check your antivirus settings.

More often than not, you simply have too strict of security
settings that prevent you from downloading files.

Otherwise, you can try a few other simple fixes to get your
computer to download files.


If you cannot resolve the issue by troubleshooting, you may
have a serious error that demands the assistance of a computer specialist.



Turn down your security settings.


Go to your browser\'s security settings.

You can change all settings to default or even low settings.



You may even see an option there for enabling downloading.

For example, Internet Explorer has a check box for
"enable file download."


Try to see if these looser security settings will allow you
to download files.



Get a new Web browser.


You may have installed your browser improperly.

You can reinstall your Web browser.


Alternatively, install a new Web browser and see if you can
download files using it.

Sometimes, this will remedy the problem.


Internet Explorer, Firefix, Safari, Chrome and other free
web browsers work well.



Update your computer.


Sometimes, a computer update can remedy your downloading
problem.

If you use Microsoft Windows, install the latest service
pack.


Reboot your computer after the installation to see if you
can now download files.

If you still cannot download anything, you need to see a
computer specialist.

Virus If Explorer Won\'t
Download Anything






The Internet is laced with malicious software just waiting
to take a crack at your personal information.

While rare, certain bits of malware have been known to
hijack a user\'s browser to prevent the download of repair or removal tools.

When this occurs, destroying the infection can be more
frustrating than usual, but is certainly not impossible.

Restart your computer.

You can do this by clicking the "Start" menu,
select "Shut Down" and click "Restart."




Press the "F8" button repeatedly as your computer reboots to activate
the Windows Advanced Options menu.









Select "Safe Mode with Networking."





Press "Enter" to load Windows.

Safe Mode is designed to allow you to troubleshoot issues
with your Windows operating system by limiting the types of processes that can
run -- this should block the virus or trojan from controlling your browser.



Remove the Virus




Download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
(MSRT).


MSRT is a free tool developed by Microsoft to assist you in
removing harmful files from your computer.







Open MSRT by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.


Click "Next" to progress to the "Scan
Type" pane.







Choose "Full Scan."


While this scan may take longer, it will ensure that every
corner of your computer is checked for malicious software.







Remove any harmful files that MSRT discovers by allowing the
software to delete them or by manually destroying the files and folders.







Empty your Recycle Bin and restart your computer to boot
Windows in standard mode.


Your browser will now function correctly.

Can notr get google


Google Chrome is a free Internet browser made by Google.
It can be used on computers running the Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems.
If you are having problems with Google Chrome (slow connection, freezes or crashes), you should consider reinstalling the program.
To reinstall Google Chrome, you need to first uninstall the program.
After that, you can reinstall it by using the following directions.

Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and select "Accept and Install."
You cannot install Google Chrome without accepting the terms of service.
Select "OK". This will open the package.
Select "Install Package" and allow the installation to complete.
Choose "Close."
In order to open Google Chrome, you must go to "Applications," then select "Internet" and choose "Google Chrome."
Reinstall Google on A Windows Computer
Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and then select "Accept and Install."
You cannot install Google without accepting the terms of service.
After you accept, the installation will begin automatically.
Allow the installation to finish.
A dialog box will appear
Select "Start Google Chrome".
That will complete its installation and the browser will open automatically.
Reinstall Google on a Mac Computer
Go to http://www.google.com/chrome to download the browser.
Select "Download Google Chrome."
Read the service terms and then select "Accept and Install."
As with the other operating systems, you can't install Google Chrome without accepting the terms of service.
Open the file labeled "Google Chrome.dmg."
A Google Chrome window will open up.
Drag that Chrome icon from the window that opened up to the desktop.
This will start installation.
Open the browser.
The Finder will have you confirm that you want to open the application you downloaded from the Internet.
Select "Open."
You must select this to open the program.
Unlike Windows computers, Macs don't automatically open programs after installation.

If you have access to another internet connected computer, go to www.malwarebytes.com and download their free Anti-Malware software. Save it to some folder, call it export, for example.
Go to www.atribune.org and download the free ATF cleaner and save it to the same folder.
Go to this link and download Hijack this and save it to the same folder.
Write these three files onto a cd.
Install them onto your computer, and without rebooting, run a scan of your system with MBAM. Fix any problems it detects. Run the ATF cleaner to clean out your temp files and browser cache.
Then see if you can update the MBAM software.
If you can go online, immediately go to windows update and apply all critical and security updates for your system that it offers.
Update your Antivirus software. If you don't have AV, download and install Avira AntiVir free from here, & update the definitions.
Now reboot your computer and run a complete scan with your updated antivirus software. Let it fix any problems it detects.
If you're still having problems, run a scan with Hijack This. Don't fix anything, just save a logfile and report back with the results...
Also please consult this valuable link.
I hope this information allow you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please reply with a comment to this thread.

Btyahoo problem that they can't fix


i guess your problem your system maybe not allowing active x components to your system. uninstall first your internet browser(IE, Mozilla, etc.) then reboot. and then install internet browser. and then explore the internet. when explorer asking to allow activex and install just click yes or either u can see a yellow above just right click and install. If this not work, go to http://www.microsoft.com and then download the "Microsoft windows script" u can find it by searching the site. after downloading install and restart the system. and again do this; when explorer asking to allow activex and install just click yes or either u can see a yellow above just right click and install.
hope this can solve the problem.
