    Unable to open/download files

    Help, i am unable to download programs or open any files from the internet!!
    If I try to open a photo it progresses to 25% and then closes, if I try to
    save it to my desktop sometimes the icon will appear for a split second and
    then disappear- soemtimes nothing happens! Please help, I've spent hours on
    the phone- reset internet security settings, turned off Norton, firewall,
    disk clean, virus scan, turned off all programs on restart and nothing! Now
    they want to do a recovery, anyone have any suggestions that doesn't require
    having to download anything? THANX

    Hi,

    Uninstall Norton's software entirely (don't just disable it), see if this
    helps.
