I'm useign Windows XP Home Service Pack 1 [i cannot download anything from microsoft, as i have 100% chance to get 'page cannot be displayed error' with every single browser when i click the grey download now button. [even tried with a mac emulator]
As an example of the kinds of links i'm trying to open, here is one for you. http://www.fileplanet.com/hosteddl.aspx?/rpgplanet/morrowind/deadite1.4b.rar
I don't know what the problem is, and it is very piss-off-able.
Also, i just downloaded and installed Virtual Machine, and rebooted, it changed nothing.
