Cannot download files

  Stormpool 11:28 08 Aug 04

Whenever I try to download a file the 'file download' window appears, turns white and stops responding.

Also it seems that MSN messenger has become incredibly slow, in particular when i log in.

Anyone come across this? I haven't found a solution on google yet, I've ran adaware and NAV scan, no critical updates available.

I found out in the registry that the default download location was on a PC on the domain, the domain server isn't on at the moment :o)

And it was taking it's time to check authentication I guess.

HKEY current user
