Hi,
try getting yourself a download manager program.
This will enable you to continue your download-or resume it if it freezes.
Search the web ro Free Download manager.
Your actual problem may be that the destination folder is full, try a disk cleanup, or empty the temp/ temporary internet files folder.

Configuring updates takes forever


The updating time depends upon the size of the update files and these can be very large, also your Internet connection speed. The download site may provide the download progress ie remaining download time, the amount of data left to download and maybe the download speed.

"Go to this web site and down load the Win98


The file is still available fron the site mentioned ie. "setup.exe", size 41.9MB. If you are using IE to download, does "Informatiom Bar" pop-up? Then you click "download file". If not you should update your IE to version 6.

Hope it helps.

DAP Download Accelerator Plus problem


Hi,

First check whether the file you ae downloading is only the mentioned size or it is more than what it is mentioned.

Once i got the same problem, when i am downloading a file it showed only 698mb but it downloaded 785mb and then the download is completed.After that everything is fine.

Dont worry wait for some time or leave it & see it will complete the download.

May be it could be the error in mentioning the file size or something.

I know this one.

Be cool continue downloading.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.
