    Um...I know it's not something that we notice...but both the link you posted and Samish's are https links.

    I'm going to see if I can do something with Ubuntu. This is REALLY annoying. Like I said above, every time I've dealt with a corrupted file, the thing just won't operate. THIS will do everything but stuff that involves those DLL's I listed. Before I went wild and formatted, I'd tried Firefox and Chrome. In both cases, I couldn't get anywhere.

    Firefox would give me the message that it couldn't add an exception for a site because of the protocol it was using (something that insisted on using a secure connection). In the case of both browsers, I get the feeling that they rely on Window's security (provided by those DLL's) to function. Which makes sense, since Microsoft would otherwise have a huge security hole with any browser that could download something from a site that could run on the computer. Again, speculation, but Windows protects itself even from third-party programs that use the https protocol.

    I'll keep checking back. I'm going to use the Ubuntu disk and see if I can download another copy of 10 and try that.

    Much thanks to all.

    Excuse me, I'm going to spend the next several hours kicking my own a$$...

    I do surveys. It's a bit of money. One of them used a connection to my modem to record my activity. So, the system was reading that, not the stuff straight from the browser.

    I thank everyone.

    The really, REALLY annoying part, (at least for my ego) is that this is the first thread I've had to start. I have ALWAYS been able to find a solution here (about 60% of the time) or elsewhere.

    Now, I have publically exposed myself as a jackass.
