    Any file over 2mb in size gets a "Connection to server timed out , try again " or a "Connection to server failed ." error . This happens in IE8 and Firefox .
    I traced it down to Nod32 v4.0.474 . If I disable the antivirus entirely , files download normaly . Enable it , and no file over 2m will complete . I haven't changed any settings away from default . Any suggestions or is this a genuine bug ?

    What's the url to the file you attempted to download?

    is a common problem in v4, if you disable just the web protection it will fix it.

    I think v4.2 supposedbly fixes this but I havent tested it yet.

    Marcos it happens on a quite a lot of file's, typically any archives, and most files larger than a few hundred kbyte.

    Some nvidia driver packages on nvidia's site do it, but funny enough it doesnt happen on all of them.
