Couple of Thoughts

by robo_dev In reply to Downloads freezing up

It's possible you have a virus that your software cannot detect, Goto the Trend Housecall site and run a virus scan from there.

- Run diags on your hard-drive
- run checkdisk,
- clean out your temporary files.
- clear cache, cookies from Web browser

Try running the PC in safe mode.

Are you using Internet Explorer?

Is the PC connected on the network to another PC? If so, can you copy files from one PC to another?
