Hi, I have WinXP home edition, SP2 is installed, Windows One Care installed.
I can't download files, open attachments or unzip anything.
At first I noticed that I can't open file attachments in Outlook Express.
Then I couldn't download a game patch from a trusted web site. I downloaded
the patch to my second PC and copied it onto a CD, then copied it to my
desktop of the first PC. It's on the desktop, but it won't unzip. A dialog
box states that it has been blocked, that I can go to the properties of the
file and check the unblock box, but there is nowhere to check. I even tried
to download winzip, that program won't download either. When I try to dowload
something, it looks like it's downloading. But when it's all finished, the
files are nowhere on my PC.
This operating system seems to have too much control over what I want to do.
I'm no expert, but I'm not a novice either. Give me back DOS! LOL! :)
I tried changing my internet zone. I tried temporarily disabling the
firewall, antivirus, and spyware.
