Possibly helpful. Having problems getting PDFs to download and freezing I started getting deeper into things. Using that below I found the PDF I wanted downloaded was being download even though the KB number shown was froze. After 2 or 3 minutes the 900 KB displayed fully. Okay, I'm on Dial Up and things are slow. Today I the phone company test our phone line and reported it good. I contacted the answering service for our Internet service and related of what I found. He has yet to return my call.
Here's something I found;
1 - Can do this after #5. Start downloading anything, especially PDFs of fair to large size.
2 - Click Control Panel
3 - Click Network and Sharing
5 - Click View Status - Connection Service should display
6 - In bottom half, under activity is sent / received and showing if receiving - numbers changing
7 - In bottom right hand corner is Tab "diagnose." Click it.
Doing such I found my Sever may be my problem. I took a Snap Shot of the Diagnose msg. Don't know of fast way to insert picture, but here is the msg. I got;
Can not communicate with DNS server (126.96.36.199).
Network diagnostics pinged the remote host but did not receive a response.
Windows found a problem that can not be repaired automatically.
