I can't download files from the internet using firefox

If I try to download a file from the internet, it's going fine until 99%. After that, it does not...

It is possible that anti-virus software is corrupt downloaded files or otherwise interferes with the download of files.

Try disabling analysis in real time (live) files in your software anti-virus temporarily to see if that makes working download.

  • Why can't I download files from the internet?

    My laptop is not download internet files, be they games or files from a trusted site, or even Word documents sent to my email address. I can start the download, but it never ends, and when I discover what is downloaded, the file will be on the list, but nothing happens. I have Windows 7, and it is a new problem. I could download before... any ideas would be greatly appreciated!


    What security software you have on the laptop?

    Open windows control panel, open Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, click the "Reset" button, then click apply and then click OK.  Restart the computer and see if that helped.

    If it is not, on another PC, download the FirefoxInstaller, this transfer to your laptop and install it. -you still have the same problems to download using this browser?

    Another option to try is the following.

    Judgment of the laptop. Tap here to f8 start you toward the top access to the Windows Recovery Console.  Use the arrow keys to select "Safe Mode with network" and press ENTER.  Let windows fully load in this mode and see if you can now access the internet and download - only choosing a site known 'safe' such as Microsoft and HP that your security software will not work in this mode.  To exit Safe Mode, just restart the laptop in the usual way and Windows does not start normally.

    Let me know the result.

    Hi ZapNap,

    1. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    2. you receive an error message when downloading?

    3. What is the type of internet connection you use?

    4 when was the last time it was working fine?

    5. do you have security software installed on the computer?

    If the problem just started I would say that you check first with the yourInternet service (ISP) provider to check if there are problems at their end, as all downloads are defective.

    If there is no problem at the end of Internet service provider, then I suggest that you check if the problem persists in mode safe mode with networking.

    Steps to start in safe mode with networking

    Note: Do not try the step below if you use wireless or internet Dialup Connection

    (a) restart your computer if it is running.

    (b) press F8 after your computer powers initially on.

    (c) once you see the menu Advanced Boot Options, you can stop tapping.

    d keys) use the up/down arrow to select your selection.

    (e) select Mode safe mode with networking and press ENTER.

    (f) you should see loading drivers and wait please.

    (g) you should then be at the Welcome screen.

    (h) logon to your computer using an account with administrator privileges.

    If the problem persists in mode safe mode with networking then I would suggest that you scan the computer using the online scanner and remove all malware infections or virus from the computer, check to see if it helps.

    The scan below only works on the 32-bit version of Windows


    You can use the Microsoft security essentials to scan your computer

    I just got a new PC with preinstalled Windows7. From day one, I have the problem that when I download files from the internet while you have no extension, so when I try to run them, told me that they do not have an associated program.
