Can`t get a complete download.

Several times today I`ve tried to download Dan Elwells broadband speed test and could only manage 6% when everything froze. I tried an older version and actually got 81% before it froze. I tried other sites but got the same. I`ve run Avast, A2,Spybot,Adaware,SpywareBlaster and cCleaner all showing no problems.
Win XP Pro, SP2, Tiscali BB uncapped.
Can anyone throw some light on this, its beyond me.
Oh! I have downloaded other programmes OK.

Is your BB modem connected via USB? If so, directly to your PC or via a hub?

Sorry, misunderstood the problem.

remind,
No to your first, I tried another on-line and it was ok.
My ADSL is USB connected directly to my PC


SANTOS07, that was the page I tried both the main download and 2 from the Simnel mirrors.


I`ll leave this open until tomorrow and try again in the morning. Thanks for the help so far.

remind & SANTOS7.
Could`nt wait until tomorrow. I`ve downloaded successfully. I did a thorough check of my connections, they were OK so I`m putting it down to gremlins.(I hope that `gremlins` isn`t some forum members user name) Cheers and thanks for help :-)
