    To be fair Kobem, this is a forum, not a chatroom. You have to allow people a little bit longer than 30 minutes to reply.

    As for why its happening, who knows. I can only assume that the download is stalling on a final action required (perhaps waiting for the server to send the final 1kb of the file or, that its stalling when trying to verify the final file against the server.

    You could stop the download and try restarting the download from scratch. I've found that this usually resolves the problem with stalled downloads.

    Then again, I know nothing of the program you are using, so it could be something about that.

    It's probably because the virus that you are inadvertantly downloading is so surprised that someone clicked on 'yes' when they were asked if they wanted to continue that it doesn't know what to do next.

    Then its maybe the source. Does it happen with any other downloads? or just this specific one?

    If its this specific one, try downloading from another source.

    Hmmm, this is a torrent? In azureus there is an option to check the file.

    I don't think it's a torrent.

    A quick search in Google shows it to be a download manager, sure enough. It's also Adware, and as has already been suggested, is probably infecting your PC with christ-knows-what.

    We do not support piracy here on CF. The best thing you could possibly do is to get a good AV program - maybe a legit free one such as ClamWIN - uninstall that FlashGet thing, and buy whatever it is you want.

    It's cheaper than having to buy a new PC before it gets screwed over with viruses :rolleyes:

    To be fair to Kobem, it looks like a demo for a game, rather than anything pirated.

    That's fair enough, I did miss that - so to that regard, my apologies to Kobem :oops:

    But if the product is Adware, I'd be hesitant to use it. And the chance of downloading a virus along with the demo is still possibly high, given the unsure location of the source.

    both valid points. I certainly wasnt disputing the dubious source, etc, just felt that I should point that part out.
