    Hello I posted this in OT but got no help - I use internet explorer..and i cannot download anything from websites! I couldnt even download AIM..I dunno why it does this, but every time i try to download something it wont work. I think i have some weird setting, Someone please help..Everytime i go to download..The "getting file information" download box comes up but then a minute later before the download starts it says " Internet Explorer cannot download from www.wherever.com. Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later" its impossible that every single site is unavailable. I gotta get this fixed, please help.

    Connection type? (Dialup, Cable, DSL)

    Do you have a router? Software firewall?
