Google any you don't know
I did, but even those sites use terms and words which are like Chinese to me.
Maybe your virus scanner that scans the files the moment you start downloading?
avast has been scanning incoming files for years, yet this problem only occured recently.
Or the firewall that doesn't like the amount of traffic you generate when you download a big file.
Nothing changed on my firewall recently.
Do you also have it when you download files with other programs than your browser (FTP or mail for example)?
I don't use FTP or applications for mail. Torrents work fine though, which I use as a work-around ATM.
And what if you run a speedtest on your connection? Does that also corrupt your download? Most speedtests download a file to test download speed.http://www.speedtest.nl/TestSuite/TestC ... peID=,8,12
Is it also with smaller files (so 10 MB, 50 MB)?
, results in 3800kB/s in a second, I guess that's a small file thenhttp://www.speedtest.net/
says 38 Mbps in roughly 10 seconds, a bigger file I guess
Maybe run your virus scanner on your entire system, can't hurt much, maybe some stupid virus is breaking things. And try restarting your modem/router if you haven't done that yet. The old router I had at home, sometimes seemed to lose its connection when the NAT table got full and emptying it would "fix" things until it got full again.
I'll try. Maybe useful to add that other computers in the same network don't have these issues.
