Video which i have downloaded from from internet is not working at home p.c in vlcc player. so which driver player i can down load

the problem is that you don't have a player with the proper codec to play that file type. try downloading these free players that have tons of codecs pre-installed in them.

Once you have these players installed, it should open 99% of all the file types out there.

Looks problem with old Internet Explorer version as explained in Article
I know you cannot access Internet using internet explorer, try downloading other browser like firefox, chrome from other computer or friends computer and transfer the installation file using USB Pen drive and download latest version on internet explorer to fix the problem

Only getting 99% of a download

Have you or are you using a third party download manager, or do you experience this in internet explorer? What version? Try running IE without add-ons (usually rt. click on icon) and see if you can download. If so, there is an issue with one of the add-ons. See Don Varnau's post in this discussion. Maybe reset IE to default settings as described here. Then check downloading.
Do you have Spybot running the resident SD helper or tea timer? If so, try disabling them and try another download. If you've got the spybot BHO running as an addon, disable it. Check downloads.
Have you cleaned your temp files and temporary internet files out recently? Go to your browser, open tools>internet options>general tab>settings (browsing history) and make sure you have at least 50 Mb storage. Clear the cache. (Your cookies will be replaced). Run disk cleanup or ATF cleaner to do so if you wish..
Take a look in the Event Viewer and see if there are errors reported there in connection with the download. Use the error id code to find solutions for this.
Otherwise, I'd guess some security program is interfering with the writing of the files. Usually at 99% the file has been downloaded to a temp file, and is being written to the location you chose to save it. It is possible you have checked a setting in your AV or firewall that is preventing files from being written to your folders. Perhaps McAffee is scanning the download. How long have you waited? Set all to default and try again.) (See here)
Avira makes a good free AV. Eset NOD32 is also very reliable, and lighter on system resource use. See AV comparatives.

If you have a Belkin router, there have been reports of problems with the .30 firmware causing this error. See here. You may have to roll back to .29.
Have you applied the latest service pack (sp3) and updated the system at windows update? Always worth a try.
If none of that helps, I'd suggest you follow the steps in this article to optimize your system, and possibly run sfc /scannow to check the integrity of the system files.
Ok that's enough. Good luck.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

About downloading

Will only download 99% of a download then stop

Windows downloads to a "temporary" filename.
At 99%, it starts to copy the file from that location to the location that you specified. If this "copy" fails, it does _NOT_ report "100%" -- e.g., when you run out of disk-space for both the "copy" and the "original-download".

When downloading files sometimes the download hangs.

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.
