Keep seeing pop-ups in IE and downloaded files are corrupt

Q: Keep seeing pop-ups in IE and downloaded files are corrupt

Every time I try to open IE I get a pop up "Track and View Your Downloads" which brings me to .htm file with a save prompt. I originally ran eset online and found the following infections:
 
MSIL/faketool.PS trojan
win32/InstallCore.PS (twice)
win32/DorgeCapturer.A
 
And several programs I was advised to use by the BC Advisor were blocked from installing. The downloads were corrupt with missing files. But I was able to use another PC to successfully download the files and completed the scans as directed.
 
The link to forum is: http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/559879/track-and-view-your-downloads/
 
At this point, no threats detected by Malwarebytes, Sophos, and ESET online scanner. However, both issues still exist (1) IE won't open (only the pop up appears) and (2) corrupted downloads.
 
We have also used Microsoft FixIt and Windows Repair (all in one)
 
Here is the DDS.Txt:

Hey guys. I'm not sure where to start with this bizarre problem. I'm trying to update my .net framework from the microsoft main site, but everytime I try to install it, the file's always corrupt. I've even used the cleaner and then tried again.
Also; pictures load strangely in mozilla firefox like this: http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/8644/236p.jpg
Flash based videos will bug out after 3 minutes or so, some youtube videos won't work at all, and websites don't load 100% sometimes.

I'm currently using a Dell Inspiron with Service Tag: 1KW3F1

There are two dual gigabyte lan ports on the motherboard. Does anyone have any suggestions?

A:Downloaded files corrupt

I would run chkdsk to make sure you don't have any errors on your drive. Go to Start, Run, and type cmd. In the command prompt window, type...

chkdsk C: /F /R

It should ask you if you want to scan on the next reboot. Type Y for yes and then reboot. Try not to interrupt the process.

( This was posted in the Vista thread under a different topic title, but I've received no responses, so I'm just going to focus on my network issues in this post. )

If I download a file that's above a dozen MBs or so, there's a very high chance it's corrupted. Files in the hundreds of MBs are almost assuredly corrupt. This occurs regardless of what method is used to download the file (IE, Firefox, Azureus, Getright...).

I've been using md5summer to confirm whether my files are corrupt or not, and I've downloaded the same test RAR about a dozen times using different methods, and the md5hash is always different. The files in question are patches for the Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts beta, so perfectly legal... but one of them is 300 MB in size, which is when I started to notice that large downloads are corrupt on my brand new Vista install. In fact, the first thing I downloaded through Azureus was the patch, so this P2P program couldn't have picked up anything prior to that. Small files have no issues.

What information is required to help me diagnose this?
 

A:Large files are corrupt when downloaded

"Installer integrity check has failed. Common causes include
incomplete download and damaged media. Contact the

In some cases I just get a message saying file is corrupt. I've tried turning my antivirus and my firewall off and that hasn't helped either, I've also ran updates and everything. The program steam also cant seem to download anything without pausing every second. I'm not sure if these two issues are connected, but more info helps. Help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

I recently got a new cable broadband connection and have noticed that all downloaded data seems to be corrupted. I'd appreciate if anyone could help me diagnose the cause.

If I check the md5sum of anything I download, it doesn't match, and no binary files can be installed. Similarly, web browsers will sometimes say that a site is using an unknown compression algorithm, but will work when I refresh (which sounds like the data is corrupted).

I'm using a Dell Inspiron laptop, connected wirelessly to a Netgear WGR614v9 router, which in turn is connected to a cable modem. This is happening in both linux and windows (the laptop is partitioned) with any network application (Firefox, IE, wget etc.)

I'd like to work out if it's the laptop, router, modem or the source of the data (i.e. the cable company) that is causing this. The fact that it is happening across browsers and OSes makes me think the computer isn't the issue, but this may be wrong.

If anyone has any suggestions I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks,
Grendl
 

A:All downloaded data is corrupt - possible causes?

The easy way to isolate this would be to try a different computer on the broadband account. Have you tried a wired connection to the router to see if that solves it? How about connecting with a wired connection directly to the modem and eliminate the router and wireless communications from the possibilities.

Divide and conquer here.

I have tried to download updates, virus scanners, etc. Every time I try to install any download, I get a "file corrupted" error and it says to retry. My Task Manager memory is showing near 0 memory free. I was able to download avast! to a flash drive on another laptop and install, and it said it found win32:zlob on a temporary internet file. Even though I deleted the files, I still have the same problem and can't download.
I also occassionally get script on web pages instead of graphics and it fixes itself when I refresh.
I was able to get a Hijackthis file and is shown below.

Any suggestions?

try a different browser to download with to see if it is a browser issue. You can also try deleting the browsers cache and cookies.

Hi, 

I've recently upgraded my windows 7 to windows 10 enterprise. I have onedrive account with files synced to cloud, before upgrading i've backed up onedrive files locally in my computer. Some of those files can't be opened after upgrade, formats include
.docx and .xlsx and .png. Most of these files were in direct onedrive main/root folder rather than in subfolders. As i can see those images in subfolders can be opened but not doc and excel files.

How can i view those files again, why have they become corrupt, what could I do in future to prevent these problems

Hello, Please help me. I have Windows 2000 Professional. I'm pretty new to all this as I have only had a computer for about a week. I got some adware threats detected by Norton Antivirus 2004 and have done a lot of reading up and I am now tring to delete them.

One of the removal instructions provided by Norton promps me to delete a file in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files but when I go to view this folder it looks like there are no files inside. Now, I know there are files in there as Norton Antivirus has picked up one in there and when I view the proporties for that folder it states there are 12 files inside but when I view the folder with Windows Explorer it appears empty!

I've gone into folder option and changed the settings so it shows hidden files and hidden system files yet this still doesn't let me view the files in this folder. How can I delete this file if I am unable to view it?

If anyone can point me to a turorial that explains this or explain it to me I would really appreciate this.

Please help a n00b.

Cheers, Luke.
 

A:Unable to view files in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files

I'm assuming you have done this to Show hidden files and folders:
Go to Control Panel/Folder Options/View and select "Show hidden files and folders"

Also,place a check in "Display the contents of system folders"
And,uncheck "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)"

If the above doesn't work try this:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced.
Create the REG_DWORD ShowSuperHidden (if it doesn't already exist) Set the value to 1, click OK, and close the Registry editor

I've been using the free Cobian Backup for about a year, with no problems. My backup procedure is to make full backups every 2 weeks, with daily incremental backups.

My 400GB external HDD is beginning to fill up. I need to remove some of the older full backups. Of course, the problem is that an older file may be non-corrupt, whereas a newer "copy" of the same file may have become corrupt.

I recently found another free tool, "Duplicate Cleaner". This file searches for duplicate files that can be identical in name, time, MD5 or any selected combination of these. I'm planning to use Duplicate Cleaner to remove duplicate files from my HDD.

So here is my question.

Is it possible for a corrupt file to show the same MD5 hash as an identical non-corrupt file? Or does the corruption produce a different MD5?

If the hashes are the same, then of course there is a danger that Duplicate Cleaner (or any tool) could delete the non-corrupt file and leave the corrupt file.

(Note that this thread is related to "MD5", rather than "Software".)

This is going to be a long winded, very experimental thread so here goes.
This is about 3 computers in question, I have 8.
One is an AMD athlon 2800+ 2.1Ghz with Inno3d 7600gs 512mb with 2gb ram.
The other 2 are Intel celeron (D) 3.46 ghz with 2gb 533mhz ram and 9400GT 1GB ram exactly the same pc's.
All running the same Windows XP PRO SP2.
I am trying to extract an RAR archive file using winrar on one computer with GTA San Andreas Ultimate 2008 from the OED.
This has worked before on this particular computer.
If you know who The OED is then you know what I mean.
Anyway, it works fine on the AMD and *one* of the Intels.
On one of the intels when I try and extract the archive, it says many files are corrupt.
Yet I have deleted all traces, and transfered again using a Toshiba flash drive.
And everytime I extract them it says they are corrupt.
remember this game has worked on this same computer before.
What is saying they are corrupt?
It works on the exact same pc in the next room.
I think my son has put some software on there which I have deleted.
Which may have put some hidden DRM type of virus that is trying to stop me using copied cracked programs.
It is not a firewall or anti virus problem I can assure you so do not even go there.Remember both PC's the same, identical, with everything.
Any ideas or questions?
Thankyou.

Here are some error messages I get:
On boot, I get the following error message: "The following file or directory is corrupt: \Program Files\Toshiba\SmartFaceV. Please run CHKDSK to repair." So I ran CHKDSK. It still does it, so idk?

Trying to open that directory, I get the following error: "C:\Program Files\Toshiba\SmartFaceV is not accessible. The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable."

i just recently back up my files to an hd drive with help of win 7 back up wizard and now my question is how to restore back up files if the pc is no longer working because of corrupt files?? or BSOD or anything... please help.. i just want to be prepared in any outcome that may occur..

A:how to restore back uped files if the pc is no longer working because of corrupt files??

Well first of all, you don't want to restore your backup if your pc is no longer working. A backup only makes copies of your personal files, like documents, pictures, ect... You would want to use your Windows 7 CD/DVD to restore your system to factory specs, then you restore your backup (using the same Restore Wizard) to get all your personal stuff back.

Hope that answers your question.

I have OS XP(3), IE8, Office 2010

I am trying to d/l a pptx file from our organizational website (that I use regularly). The file is shown as a pptx file (as displayed by the properties feature), but when I click to d/l it, it shows up as a zip file to be opened and the computer tries to unzip it, but doesn't do a very good job in doing so.

I have tried to d/l other pptx files from other internet sites and they work (d/l) OK.

I have the same OS on another laptop and it d/ls this particular file from this particular site just fine.

I can change (rename) the extension on this file (from zip to pptx) and it works fine

I have tried everything reccomended on various PPT forums and it hasn't worked.

The file association is Microsoft PowerPoint.

The file d/ls perfectly with Firefox.

What is it about the configuration of XP/IE8 that lets this happen?

The issue here is that this particular file has been posted to the website for members of our organization to d/l and use. Many of these members are not savvy enough to be able to 'manipulate' the file and use it as it was designed. I am tryng to make this d/l as user friendly as is possible.

I get a windows boot error 0xc000000e if I try to boot into safe mode or launch startup repair through through windows boot manager. I tried using a windows 7 recovery usb but startup repair says it cannot repair the problem automatically. Through the command line I ran chkdsk /f and /r multiple times, and now all the files verify and and there are no more bad cluster errors, but I still can't boot. I can get into f8 options but safe mode doesn't work nor does startup repair so I'm not sure what good that does. If I try to boot windows 7 normally, it hangs on the startup screen and the animation doesn't run.

I used partition wizard and it can explore the filesystem fine. It also says that the partition with windows 7 and all my data, is inactive. I tried setting it active using PW but it doesn't do anything. I also tried to fixmbr but it doesn't seem to make a difference either.

I ran an offline sfc scan and it said it found corrupt files but was unable to repair, which I would usually do a inplace upgrade but I can't boot. I'm running chkdsk /r again to see if I can atleast get into safe mode then do a repair install, and finally make a clone when my replacement hdd arrives. I have backups but since they were ran while the partition wasn't bootable I'm not sure if I can get it to boot on a new hdd anyway, which is why I want to make a clone while running windows 7.

Recently - I've been having a strange problem. when I download a photo or image, or even capture a screen shot and save it to a folder, I cannot see it in that folder. I originally thought i had not hit save properly or not saved a file that I thought I had - but when i tried to re download an image or capture it again and name it the same thing - I got a message saying there was already a file by that name in the folder.

I have tried ensuring all hidden files are shown, and refreshed the window to no avail. but when i restart the computer, I am able to see the files in the folder as the should have been displayed all along. also confusing - when i look in the folder after saving...say if I've saved 12 images into the folder from the net or screen capture, but the folder is only displaying 1 image - it was say the folder only contains one image...

how can i fix this so i do not need to reboot every time i want to see newly created images?

Hello, I have an HP laptop running Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It's actually been relatively fine for me until the last few days. I was having some problems editing video files and couldn't figure out why, so I updated to service pack 2. Around the same time, although I honestly cannot be sure that it was because of the update, none of my downloads will work. I believe it happened once or twice before I updated my sp but now I can't download ANYTHING. It's bizarre. The entire file will download and the file will show download progress just like normal. But, once complete the file shows up as 0 kb and doesn't open. I've tried using firefox 3.5.3 and IE 8...both do the same thing. I have also checked my permissions and made sure that I am allowed access to all of the folders that the documents are saved in. Nothing seems to help.

I really don't want to have to format/reinstall windows since I have quite a bit of stuff I would need to backup. Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thanks.

I just downgraded from Vista SP2 to Vista SP1 and by doing so, have somehow screwed up my downloads in both Firefox and IE8. Whenever I download in either one, the download results in a file that is 0 kb.

The strange thing is, Google Chrome somehow wasn't affected by this downgrade (if that's what caused this) and I can download files fine in that browser.

Can someone tell me what's going on here and how to fix this in IE8 and FF 3.5? I've already tried reinstalling FF and it didn't help at all.

Okay, let me start off by saying i'm not that computer savy.

Problem:
Recently have had a number of BSOD's (Made a thread in the appropriate forum)
Computer crashed (BSOD: Memory_Management) and when the computer started up, windows update was stuck on preparing to configure windows.
Switched off windows after it took 1hour + doing nothing I started in safe mode with command prompt. Tried a system restore in safemode.

When i loaded windows normally, got 3 errors:
1. For the memory management BSOD.
2. "This driver can't release to failure!!!" - No idea what is causing this. Maybe gigabyte Software?
3. System restore has failed to restore and asking me to run chkdsk /r.

Some Background:
Recently logging into my user acocunt has been taking long as in a black screen would appear for around 2 minutes before showing the desktop.

Using trial and error, i managed to find the source: "windows management instrumental service". Stopping that has taken away the black screen problem.
However, upon retuning from a BSOD, the black screen reappears.

Hello ALL,

I know it's a dumb and a sad situation, I've deleted a drive and quick formatted...now I want to get some data back...it is presently in an unlocated state, I've not touched it nor rewritten over it, all I've done for now is tried 3 programs:

ParetoLogic data recovery
GetData RecoverMyfiles
EaseUs Data recovery

All give same results, files are all there, correct files sizes...but files come out corrupt, no use.

Before I give up, is there something I can do to restore, something like correct table to HD, or maybe allocate the drive and scan again ?

Any hints would be greatly appreciated
Cheers from Canada

A:Recovered files from formatted drive : all corrupt files ?

You don't seem clear on what you did. If you have quick formatted, how is it unallocated?

Another free one you could try is Recuva.In the options select "Deep Scan" and "restore folder struture"

https://www.piriform.com/recuva/download

If Recuva is not successful, then it depends how much it is worth to you.

There are several programs which will scan, find the files and allow you to recover a small amount.

If they work well for that, then you can pay for a license and complete the job.

You could try that with MT power data recovery ( recovers 1gb at a time free ), and partition guru (recovers small up to 60kb for free ), and ZAR ( recovers all photos for free )

I work ( well actually volunteer )  in a school with 60 plus fully updated windows
7 machines - all have IE9 and Word Starter. Recently, we made the move to Active
Directory. Word Started worked for about a month after and then the system admins made
a change to the OU with the outcome being that WS now fails to function. Their
answer to this is that WS is not really an enterprise level product and should
not have been working at all and to remove it completely. I hesitate to do this
since I cannot reinstall it as it is an OEM product. I have moved everyone over
to Open Office ( this was installed as a backup on the image ) to fix that
emergency. Now, when teachers go to web sites that serve up .doc files, upon
download with IE9 ( ironically this does not happen in FireFox ), the file extension
actually changes to a .wiz file. Luckily, Open Office will open these but, I
have to reset the default program to open this file type every few reboots. I?m
needing to know what settings in AD might have been change or need to be
changed back to restore Word Starter functionality.
Thanks for any help.

Hi,

I suggest to go to

Hope that helps.

Im downloading files to my desktop, but the only way i can access them is going to open containing folder option from the download box (firefox), which just takes me to the desktop folder. if i navigate to the desktop folder manually, they cant be found. nor do they come up in a search. this just started happening hours ago, so unless something out of my control made these files hidden all of the sudden, im not sure what is going on. i have downloaded different file types from different websites, so its not just a problem from one site or file type. any help would be appreciated.

Interesting problem. I should think if you downloaded files to the desktop, and used Windows Explorer to view the desktop, then you should see the files. Why not create a folder in your Libraries called "Downloads" and configure Firefox to download files to that folder (Firefox options, options, general tab). See what happens then. Curious.

A:Please help - Downloaded files are corrupted

I know and understand the problems you're having as I too have had the same issues. I'm running vista business 64bit connected via wifi to a belkin router, and when I download files (zip,rar,exe etc) they would all be corrupt. However I noticed this problem would come out of the blue and then vanish without explanation. After trying countless things to resolve the issue I made what I think may be a discovery:

Last night in an attempt to resolve the issue I disconected from my own home network and connected to my neightbours instead, and all of a sudden the problem was gone. When I reconnected to my own network the problem returned.

Now for the strange part, I have a vista 32bit laptop which is connected directly to the same belkin router via ethernet cable and it never has experienced this problem, however if I have something downloading directly onto the laptop, then at the same time start downloading something on my 64bit vista workstation via wifi, the problem disappears. In other words if my 64bit downloads without using my full 8mb bandwidth the problem goes away. So now I am getting past the problem by forcing my vista 64bit workstation to download alot slower than my bandwidth allows.

I have no earthly idea why this is happening, but in my case at least it would appear that the problem is localised to the network, or router or modem. As I stated when I connect to my neighbours 2mb wifi network the problem 100% stops!

Thanks and thanks for your understanding.

A:downloaded files and dvdshrink

ok new thread is usaully under the thread chart .it's a gray button .

well first of alll u need to turn the downloaded file in dvd form.For movies, avi is only one single file. i use winavi.to turn avi movies into dvd form. after u've turned the avi movie into dvd form.go to dvd shrink, but i doubt the file will be over 4.7 gb. so this is mostly done with dvd movies.that are over 4.7 gb in size so that u are able to fit it on a dvd blank disk.

for dvd shrink to work u must open dvdshrink then press open files on the top menu . then select files then once that opens u press analysis. then after that's done edit what u want i usually get rid of the french language waste of space. then press back up and then whaa laaa . once that's done burn the files onto a disk using nero or any other burning program .

dvd decrypter works similar u open the movie in a drive then decrtypt it. then if the movie is still way to big then use dvd shrink
i usually only have to use dvd shrink though because dvd shrink has a bulit in decrypter .so it's an all in one process with dvd shrink .unless the file. is really protected then use dvd decrypter. have a nice day and good luck .

I've googled for threads on this, but no fixes. I have seen some threads on this forum regarding this as well, one where the blame is mainly put on AVG Antivirus (even though one poster reports it happening on a machine with "NO Firewall, NO AV, NO UAC, Reset IE7 OR Newly installed Firefox (downloaded via another PC), One original User ADMIN account all running in Genuine Vista Ulitmate X86, SP1 and fully updated"), and another in which using Chrome is proposed.

What I'd really like to know is why my files disappear upon download completion.

It happens in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari, but for some reason not in Chrome. I'm not switching to Chrome, so it's quite annoying having to switch between browsers to download a file. -And I guess I'm quite thankful I had Chrome installed before this happened.

I don't run a firewall other than my router's own, I have Avast Antivirus Home installed, and I've had it for several years without any problems. Disabling it doesn't change anything. I've done a full virus scan with no result, but I've never had virus issues anyway. UAC is turned off. Download location has no effect on the issue.

WHAT is going on? Anybody?

Hello,

Let me explain my problem, maybe it has to do with my windows xp or whatever.

When I download from a certain site a pdf file, that file is saved in my computer as an udeletable file. A nod32 scan of the file returns a number of either 2 or three files scanned while I only scan one! Malwarebytes detects only 1 file and both detect as clean.

It happens with both Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer!

If I save the file under a different name after opening it with Acrobat 8.1 the file becomes "normal" i.e. deletable

If I copy paste to another computer the file behaves again normally. Downloading from the same site on other computers of my network I have no problem whatsoever

Are the windows corrupted?
Did I do something in the Browser?
Malware?

I thank you in advance and I appreciate your help apriori

Hi,

Can you tell me what the site is that you are having problems with and I can see what happens for me.

I am having problems opening downloaded files from my email only. I don't know why. I use Windows Vista, Firefox and the email server provided at my university.

Basically what happens is this (I've included screen shots where helpful):

I get an email with an attachment and I click download to download it.

Then a window pops up saying that it has no idea what type of file this is but will save it anyway.

I look on my desktop where the file has been saved, and the icon is just a blank sheet of paper.

I double click the icon to open the file and it tells me that it doesn't know what file type this is, so I have to choose a program to open it. I choose the file type that I know this particular file is (in this instance, a spreadsheet file) and it fails to open.

Now, it fails to open for several reasons. Sometimes I'm told it's corrupted, sometimes it's the wrong file type, sometimes it needs to be converted, sometimes it's being used by another program. None of this is ever true. If we go back to the first picture, it's CLEARLY a spreadsheet file and should open in spreadsheet, no? So then why doesn't it do this?!

This happens with Word files all the time for me. I have probably 3 different versions of Word on my computer and all of them fail to open Word files downloaded from my email.

So, what's going on? Is this a problem with Vista, Firefox, or my email server? And how can I fix this?

A:Cannot Open Downloaded Files

Is that the actual filename?



You cannot have slahes in a file name. Also, the file extension = .sheet

Have the file resent or rename it with .xlsx file ext.

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and despite having tried lots of suggestions and followed tutorials posted on this site, I cannot unzip downloaded files - these being simple documents or spreadsheets. The zipped folder is displayed and I can choose settings to extract all files but once i browse to the extracted folder it is empty. There are no error messages. I see in my file associations that .zip is not there but have already used the tutorials to restore and re-associate the zip files with the built in utility. The only associations are for .zfsendtotarget and .zipenx. A month or so ago, I got so annoyed with this I installed Winzip but this didn't work either!

I'm using Windows Home Premium and IE8, if that's any help. I do hope someone can help me as I'm getting incredibly frustrated... Thanks

Hey guys,

When I try to download a file from the Internet, I get a box sasying "Run/Open", "Save", and "Cancel" as always. When I click on either of the first two options, however, the box simply clicks and unclicks with no actions following it. Almost as if you click "Post" in a forum, but you hold the click on it and move the cursor elsewhere, stopping the system from performing that action. On some days, I can get my system to download about 5 files before I can no longer click "Save" or "Open".

Any ideas?

When I click on it, it doesnt do anything except say its not a valid win32 application. What else can I do?? Thank you!

A:Problem with downloaded files

its probably because the download was a bogus file. Make sure its an exe other than that why do you wanna zip it up? If you use XP compression, its naff and usually gets bigger not smaller!.

Try opening other EXE's also, because there is a virus (I think its the [email protected]) that screws all the file associations and stops you opening any EXEs. For this there's a simply registry fix.

Well, the other day I swapped out my harddrive, It died trying to install a power supply (that is another story in general) but I bought a new one. I installed vista onto it, it works fine and everything, there's a few thing wrong though.

The biggest may be that I can't install any files from windows update, or anything I needed to download like Mozilla firefox. It simply says "Firefox has stopped working" right after I press allow. Get this, I'm already logged in as admin.

Another error is that youtube videos aren't working. I installed adobe flash just fine, well not just fine, there were like timestamp errors and other garbage in the way, but flash player installed.

I'm sure there are more sypmtoms.. I just can't really think of them right now.

Aren`t they going to your downloads folder, set it up so all your downloads will go there, it`s the default location in Windows 7, unless you`ve changed it.

I run Firefox 3.0.3 under Windows XP SP2 Home.
I have downloaded, a new batch of .jpg files from a trustworthy site that I have been using without any problem for a couple of years. With the latest batch of files I find that whenever I try to open any one with PaintShop Pro, I get an Open File - Security Warning asking me if I really want to open it from an unknown publisher.

If I check the file's properties, I find it is blocked. I can unblock each file individually, either by changing the property or by checking an option on the Security Warning.

I can see no reason for this happening suddenly. I have found various possible solutions proposed (but for slightly different environments or file-types), but they do not work for me. Is there any really proven solution for either preventing the blocking in the first place or removing the block en bloc?

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help.

First, please note that this download problem does not seem to be browser-related. It happened both in Firefox and IE.

When I receive an attachment in an email and click to download it on FF, a FF download window opens up and I see the "progress" of the download happening. This is all normal. But when I click to open in (or try to right click to open off a menu) --- nothing happens. If I click save instead of open --- nothing saved where I've sent it.

Same as above if I click to download a PDF or exe file from a website. (With one strange exception: if I click on a link that instead of opening a pdf file directly, opens a new tab which then, with no further action from me, somehow "opens" a pdf, either in the tab, OR as a stand alone pdf --- appearing in the tray of open programs under the Adobe icon at the bottom of my screen --- which I then can save!)

On IE, the only difference is that once the dialogue box appears asking whether I'd like to save or open, and i click on one or the other, the dialogue box closes, but nothing has been opened or saved.

I run AVG anti-virus (free version), which is up to date, and reports no problems. I run a scan using their PC Analyser, which found some registry errors ---- which i could fix using their PC Tune-up..... except I can't open the download of its exe file!

I have a Downloaded Program File entry, that has "unknown status", no creation date, and it says "none" under Last Accessed.

It does claim to be 4kb's in size.

This program file has no name, but instead, is a grouping of numbers and letters, all enclosed in parenthese..{}.

Highlighting it, and right clicking it only brings up the properties of the entry.

It cannot be deleted either from the keyboard, or from the menu...File>delete..Edit>cut.

The properties of this entry show it to be an Active X control, (with no creation date, no access date and no status. It does not appear to be damaged...it does not say that there are any damaged files associated with it).

I dont feel comfortable giving you the codebase http address, because Im not sure if it turns into a link that anyone can access. But I will tell you that it includes the words; fpdownload, macromedia, polarbear, ultrashim.cab

Using my search bar to go to that location brings me to a folder, with an apparent program that has yet to be installed.

maybe there's a virus in your system. You should run a full system scan with your updated AV. Of maybe there's a problem in your hard drive.

Hello, my name is Ryan and I'm having a problem with added UFO extencions to my downloaded files. I've recently put an email on a microsoft community support site, so here it is...

After downloading a specific type of file from online,
I am unable to access it in any way. This seems to happen
with files that are saved as the .UFO type. For example,
I've recently tried downloading AOL instant messenger,
which saved as Install_AIM.exe.ufo, but after double
clicking on the file, and trying to explore its contents I
am unable to open it in any way. Many other files I've
downloaded also cannot be opened. I have a windows XP home
edition, and I have netscape 7.0 as an internet provider.
Any help would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello Ryan,

It appears that some application is adding the .ufo extencion to your
downloaded files. This may be due to using some type of download manager or
even possibly some other 3rd party application running in the background,
you might want to check the settings in Netscape to see if the cause might
be with the browser. You might want to try the download using Internet
Explorer, if this is successfull then you might want to contact Netscape
support for assistance. Your example of the AOL (Install_AIM.exe.ufo)
download you might try to remove the .ufo from the file name and then
double-click the file to see it it will run.

Thank You

Whenever i try to open a downloaded file, it wont let me. The "open" option is gray. Here is what it looks like:


For some reason, i can't renew my Avast license key. It keeps saying "invalid key" each time i change it. Also, Avg 8 trial has expired. So basically, i am anti-virusless. I only have spybot available.

Since i cant download any files and open them, i cant get any new anti virus software. What should i do?

EDIT: i also have tried updating vista. It does not work.

I downloaded a few files from my Onedrive and Internet (Application form) and when finished deleted them. I sent them to the recycle bin and emptied my recycle bin. The next day they reappeared. Every time I delete them, they still return the following day. I have tried permanently shredding and that has not worked. I have wiped all file history, cookies, cache etc. I can't access command prompt as I'm on my works computer. This has happened for months now. The computer runs on Windows 7.

A:Downloaded files keep re-appearing.

I think it is syncing with OneDrive which is what it is supposed to do. Go to your OneDrive and delete it there. At worst, I'd try going to OneDrive on the web and delete from there.

From time to time, my CPU rises to 100% and pretty much lags me out from doing anything.

- I have all the latest drivers installed.

- sometimes, the CPU is fine, and when im done downloading a song or a .zip file, the files end up being corrupted or the song ends up skipping because it wasnt downloaded correctly.

- videos on youtube tend to load very slowly at times, and its not just from the server ive tested the same videos with my laptop and all runs smooth.

I was wondering is this because of my Video card or possibly my Power supply ? im not to sure whats causing the problem. And I dont see any certain program pop out as being overworked. Firefox is being used the most at around 50% and Ive only got Winamp/ZA Firewall and Firefox open with all this lag still.

- All of my drivers are currently updated from Windows update

Heres my system specs, any recommendations or probable upgrades I should do to my Pc/ Or help is greatly appreciated

CPU: Intel Pent 4 3.06GHZ, 3065 Mhz, 1 Core (2 Logical processors)
Memory: 2 GIGS of DDR2 RAM
VIDEO: Geforce 9500 GT
Power Supply: 300 Watts
I remember before installing Windows 7, windows 7 advisor said theres probably going to be problems running Windows Aero with my Graphics card.

A:100% CPU / Downloaded files corrupted /

No, your graphics card should be working perfectly well with Aero. I highly doubt it has anything to do with power supply.

I'm beta testing ZoneAlarm Extreme myself and have found it to be excellent. They just put a new version which you might want to get and install. You can upgrade without removing the old one.

Here is a link to that: https://www.zonealarm.com/security/e...A-60day-1user#

But what you should really do is use the backup feature found within ZoneAlarm so it saves to your documents folder.

Then completely uninstall ZoneAlarm from your system. You can restore your settings from the backup easily when you want to reinstall.

Point is, get that off your system and then tell us how things are.

We have similar CPU and you use all the same apps as me. Nice.

Another recomendation, although it's unlikely will fix anything, is to visit NVidia's site and install the driver for your graphics card from there. WU drivers...well....are WU drivers...even though they are from the manufacturer too.

Here is the graphics driver you should be using: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_wi...1.07_whql.html

And very good luck to you!

Hello, first post here, quite a beginner with computers, and I'm danish so sorry if my description might be a bit unclear ^^;

Less then a week ago I got a message, with a countdown, that say that new installations was almost finished, and that the computer needed to be restarted to finish the installations. Then I was given the choice to restart now, or wait.

After having restarted, I got a message saying that a .dll file had been misplaced, and another .dll file could not be installed correctly, also it said that I should get a new .dll file.
I don't remember the whole thing, but both files had windows32.exe in the name. And this message appeared every time I started the computer

Then I used the system-recreating option under the maintenance part in the control panel. And then the message stopped appearing.

But then, today, I got the same message as first descriped, and it all started again.
Now I have recreated the system again, but unsure of what to do next.
I have read about the windows32.exe files. but it seems as the whole thing cannot download.

I've got microsoft windows XP 2002, and AVG Free edition, also Norton Internet Security, but is is deactivated and I have never used it.

I have this problem that most every file I download gets corrupted. From music files off iTunes to .exe files, they all get corrupted. I don't know if this is stemming from the same problem, but whenever I try watching Youtube videos, the red streaming bar will continue to fill up the bar as if the entire movie has finished downloading, but the video stops dead in the middle as if I reached the end of the video. It's probably not my internet connection, because when I tried connecting my laptop to the same Ethernet cable as my desktop, my laptop doesn't experience this problem. I've tried cleaning my registry which didn't help as well. It could be malware, but unfortunately, I can't update Adaware or AVG as the update files aren't immune from this problem. My computer specs are below, and any and all help is greatly appreciated.

I just downloaded some business cards template from H-P. They downloaded, but go into a win-zip format and I can't open them. (The site says it wil download into word. This has happened to me twice. If I try to un-zip they go to pictures in my Photo Suite softwaare.) I dohave ZipMagic on my Windows ME machine.
 

A:downloaded files go to winzip

Welcome to TSG myodie. I'm going to put your topic in the Business Applications forum since it evidently involves Word.

But do let us know what the file extension is on the files you are trying to download (you can also try right clicking on the link and selecting "save target as" to specify a download directory if possible). Try to supply a link to the files you are having problems with so others can check them out.

Is it ok to delete downloaded files in the "download folder"?

A:Delete downloaded files

If you're done with them, sure. They are only things you should have downloaded with your browser from the internet, and as such if you don't need them, you should be safe to remove them.

I downloaded a file and when I tried to install it, it said it was unable to download because files may be corrupted.

Since it was never installed on the computer, does it mean that I don't have the file anymore?

And if it is still on the computer, how do I find it and how do I get rid of it?
 

A:What happens to downloaded files that are not installed?

A file downloaded stays on the computer until you delete it. How do you find it? Look in the folder you downloaded it to. Depending on where or why the install failed, it may have left files in various places on your computer. Trying to find them to delete them could be very cumbersome and not always necessary.

I downloaded Norton Internet Security from the Net. Tried to install it but ran into a problem so I want to do an XP Home System Restore to a date earlier than the download. Doing so will lose all the recent downloaded Internet files so I need to find the NIS download file and burn it to CD before doing the restore. The desktop icon properties show the path but Windows Explorer only shows four temporary Internet folders, I think it creates new ones for each session, and I cannot find earlier ones. I've tried "show hidden files" but without success and have run a search in Explorer as well.

Any suggestions on how I can find older downloaded Internet files?

A:Where does IE6 put the downloaded program files?

Where the download is saved depends on your browser settings and whether you selected a folder at the time.
If you can remember the name of the downloaded file (or part of it) you can do a search for that file. If you cannot remember go back to the download site and follow the links to download and at some stage the filename will be visible.
