sounds like the firewall is blocking it you need to go into the firewall settings and unblock it.

could be your ISP blocking the site perhaps? or a firewall

Default more info

Actually there is this series that i am trying to download n till recently i could download from megaupload without problems, but nowadays i cant. I mean, i click on the file link and get the download code (3 letters) than wait for 40 secs to get the download link....but this is where it gets messed up!! I can never get the download link, after waiting for a few awhile, it says page not available.

Regarding changes in my firewall, i have tried fiddling with it but dont want to mess around too much coz i dunno know much abt this stuff.

I hope this info might be of some help as i really wanna get ths prob fixed asap!!!

THANKS!

do you have any other computers on your network and are they able to download the file? that way we can rule out the connection itself.

ya ive used tuneup utilities before i dont hink it would have anything to do with it. would you mind posting a screenshot of what it does when you try and download the file you want. also are you able to download other files besides that one?
