Unable to download files

Hi there,

I have windows vista premium with Norton Internet security 2007 and internet
explorer 7 on my system.
When I try to download files from the internet and I select save it does not
download the full file for example I tried downloading the Company of heroes
patch of around 115MB and although it stated the download was complete it had
only downloaded a few KB? I try to run this file direct from the site and it
states it is not a valid WIN32 application (which I would imagine it is due
to not getting the full file).

Can anyone help as its rather frustrating.

Thanks. Darren from UK.

use a download manager to handle the downloads. Both of these are free and
do not contain any spyware-malware.

www.freedownloadmanager.org

or

its very possible norton is interfering.
might look into replacing it with something less intrusion.

avg and avast are free virus scanners that work well with vista.
