RE: download error



Hi Nass and thanks for the reply.
I tried all this to no avail so I re formated and still have the problems!
I have other computers that work fine I even used a different modem,
sometimes it works fine then others no email or no email orbrowser I have
tried opera and Thunderbird just the same I wondered if it was hardware but
everything else on the computer is fine!

It was 'utimate defender' and all its crap! I went to
http://forums.majorgeeks.com/showthread.php?p=1006050 I followed the removal

avoid.



Thanks very much
