    Cannot download any files from the internet, from any program


    My relatively new Windows 10 laptop has a recurring issue where it cannot download any files from the internet.It was so frustrating I reinstalled Windows entirely. After a month or two the problem came back. In Firefox and Steam, the program will crash instantly when trying to download or install. In Chrome the program just sits there quietly doing nothing, forever. Clearing browser cache seems to work most of the time. But I cleared every cache in Steam and nothing will work.I can still save files from Notepad, so it is specifically files from the internet. I have over 300 GB free on my ha

    Internet Downloads

    Thanks all for the useful suggestions, i certainly can understand the idea of refreshing downloads. I wish Firefox had that little button lol. Now i'll try and download Warrock (a great FREE game) with download manager though (annoyingly) firefox is now downloading without buggering up!
    I just did a few spyware scans which though didn't stop the probs it probably did stop all thoses bloody programs from using the internet and slowing it down.

    Can not download/run any program from the internet.


    After downloading just click the "x" and close the downloader

    Then open file explorer and go to downloads.

    I already checked with Malwarebytes for malware and it's clean!

    Are my Registry Files all legitimate programs?

    Isn't there a web tool whereby I can check if programs listed in my REGISTRY FILES are legitimate programs?
