As a member of TechRepublic, I receeive periodic mails, listing downlodable freeware. But I am unable to download ANY of them, eventhough there is a download icon against the software name, indicating "click here" to download.

I am having a HP PavilionPC (model t820i) with 256MB RAM, 40GB HDD (of which only 16 GB is occupied), Windows XP Home Edition with SP2. I am able to surf the web or download software from other sites readily.

I have ensured that the sites,, and are in the ALLOWED list in my Internet Secure Sites.

I would be thankful for a positivel working answer.

I think it came down to the internet browser being used.

I'm assuming you use Internet Explorer?

Try using Firefox.

Thank you Old Mycraft for your suggestion. I tried Firefox; but even hen downloads don't happen.
In view of the many interesting s/w being reported by the TechRepublic, this inability makes that service of TechRepublic toatally unusable.
I would appreciate all help from users of TechRepublic or the organizers of TechRepublic themselves, at the earliest.
Thhanking all concerned in advance.
