With my laptop in the repair shop, I'm using a loaner (WinXP) that truncates downloads of almost all the online programs I've tried to install: my Webroot Spysweeper and Spybot being the most crucial failures. They download fine for about 5-10 minutes, then they pretend to be done, but only a fraction of the full download actually comes thru, and when I try to use the supposedly downloaded files, I get a message saying "corrupted file." Can anyone tell me how to circumvent this, please? (I cannot do it @ the library computers around here, bec. they block thumbdrives, and the only friend who has a computer has the exact same problem.) McAfee and SWB (which I do have installed and updated) don't guard adequately against rootkits and trojans: on my laptop, I count on Spysweeper and Spybot to bounce those guys out. I also have TrendMicro's anti-spy installed, but inspite of that, I feel insecure w/o the additional, comforting presence of SpySweeper and Spybot. (I do use the Ewido micro-scanner and Ad-Aware frequently throughout my internet sessions, but again, they don't act as bouncers, only as "afterthoughts.") Many thanx in advance for any assistance with this.
