It started when I was trying to download some driver files for the secondary PC at the home here. It is not connected to the net.
So, I`m at the primary machine and I go to HP.COM to get some drivers and when I click on the “download” icon for the (any) appropriate driver, the download dialog box opens and the progress bar starts progressing for about 1 second and then it stops moving. The paper keeps flying through the air, but all other activity seems to stop.
WIN 98, it is.
I ran adaware, closed all other startup programs, cleared out the cookies, and on/offline IE cache, deleted unecessary files via the harddrive utilities window, restarted. Twice.
Then I tried similar downloading/saving with Netscape and it didn`t work either - same problems. Tried to download/save Mozilla, but got the same non-activity.
I was able to download some stuff directly from the vendor site (3com) but not HP.com or Mozilla so far. So, I can download/save some things, just not the ones I really need.
It has worked a thousand times before.
What causes or controls this sort of activity or lack thereof?
I can obviously download DSMB pages…
