Downloading files problem
Why when trying to download files from the forum do I now have a problem. Tried two different files now (both zip files) and they go through the process of downloading but when I look at them they are only 1K and if they look the correct size they won't open, sayimng the file may be corrupt. Any ideas? I have downloaded other files from other sites and they download OK just seems to be from this forum.

I'm using Firefox and i have to middle mouse click them (opens a new tab). Might help.

You might want to try opening the files you get as if they were text files and see if they contain an error log or sorts.
I've seen this sort of behaviour when a site has been blocked and the download has nothing but a forbidden message in it from a content filter or some such.

I have similar issues with FireFox. It wants to save the file as "attachment" rather then the proper file name.
