Downloads stalling

  alexanders 08:58 23 Jun 03

When I try to download certain software from the websites (or from CD ROMs) my computer stalls.
This has occured with outlook express 6, DirectX9, and certain windows updates.
For instance I tried to download a recent windows update which was only 125 KB. The download occured in a couple of seconds but the install took 1 hour 45 minutes. During the install process all controls (mouse, etc) on the computer were responding very slowly. Any bigger files just stop completely - usually after the install has been completed but during "copying".
I have disabled my Norton Virus checker.
I am running Windows ME and have 250 MB of RAM.
Any thoughts?
