Hi

Whenever I seem to try and download something that will take approxamatley 20 minutes or more, after a while the download just stops completely, and then I get the message "The connection with the server was reset"

It would be a great help if you could solve this problem I have thanks :grin:

Hello and Welcome to TSF

This is typical for a dial-up connection. Is this your connection type?
Does this also happen when you are sending/recieving emails?

Try using WinsockFix, download it and unzip it. Then double-click on it to run it.

In addition to Geekgirl's advice, try using a download manager like FlashGet which will allow you to resume interrupted downloads. Instead of right-click/save as... you get an option to right-click/flashget which takes over the downloading process and can be paused/resumed at any time without losing any data.
