I have been reading forum posts (including this particular forum) and articles for an hour and still haven't found the solution. So hopefully, someone could shed some light. Lately, my downloads keep stopping halfway through. These include :
1. Getting 'direct' files
2. Files from upload services like Rapidshare, Mediafire, etc.
3. Streamed media like Youtube, Imeem mp3s, etc.
I've been trying different internet sources like university wifi connection, hotspots, a friend's wireless modem and my own subscribed connection from data outlets on the wall. I have also scanned my laptop with AVG, Ad-aware and Kaspersky, and it seems to be clean, still the problems persist.
