Unable to access Internet after downloading file

October 30, 2013

Most of the time, I spending my days facing my computer installed with Internet connection, I always download a lot of stuffs from videos, softwares, tutorials and games.

I am confident to download a lot of stuff because I am protected with Deep Freeze and (at this time) I use AVG Internet Security 2013. Take note I am using the updated full version of the Anti virus so it can scan everything. From files from usb, your whole system, your emails, the sites you visited, your memory usage and networking.

For me at that time, No one is better than AVG Anti Virus because of its user friendly options and system usage.

Until one time, while I am downloading videos, I began to notice that my Internet connection has been gone. And the IDM download transfer rates began to become zero.

downloads block by avg antivirus because of its internet and network scanning capabilities

At first I began to panic, because I desperately needed that file. I hold my breath and think calmly and said.. “What seems to be the problem?”

I analyzed the fact the IDM repeatedly going to zero even after I restart my PC and looking for possible causes, observations and solutions. And I wrote all of them

POSSIBLE CAUSES:

  • FIREWALL BLOCKS CONNECTION
  • UNDETECTED VIRUS INFECT MY SYSTEM

TESTED SOLUTIONS

  • DOWNLOAD FILES/VIDEOS ONE BY ONE ONLY, NOT SIMULTANEOUS DOWNLOADS IN A TIME IN ANY SITE.
  • REFORMAT MY PC AND UPGRADED MY O.S FROM XP SP2 TO XP SP3 ORIGINAL VERSION AND WITH WINDOWS UPDATE. BUT EVEN I’M NOT WORKING IN ORIGINAL VERSION
  • DOWNLOAD VIDEO SIMULTANEOUSLY BUT NOT A YOUTUBE VIDEO
  • AVG FIREWALL AND PC FIREWELL DISABLE TEMPORARILY
  • CLEARING UP THE COOKIES
  • RESTART MY PC

OBSERVATIONS

  • UNLIKE VIDEOS, FILES ARE EASILY DOWNLOADED USING BROWSERS DOWNLOADER OR EVEN THE SAID PLATFORMS
  • WHEN I CLICK AND READY TO DOWNLOAD A YOUTUBE FILE THE INTERNET CONNECTION IS STILL THERE BUT ALL THE BROWSER WILL CREATE A NON STOP LOADING…
  • EVEN JUST BROWSING A PARTICULAR YOUTUBE VIDEO REMOVES THE INTERNET IMMEDIATELY

After all of these facts I have made, I call back my technician (the one where I bought mygadgetmanjay.co.uk_AVG_IS2013_logo_734x450 PC), and rehearsed all the information I stated above and he said: “SIR, MAYBE ITS YOUR ANTI VIRUS THAT BLOCK THE PROGRAM. YOUR ANTI VIRUS HAS ITS OWN FIREWALL ASIDE FROM YOUR WINDOWS FIREWALL THAT BLOCK YOUR IDM WHEN IT DOWNLOADS. YOU SAID BEFORE THAT IT DOESN’T HAPPEN TO YOU BEFORE. BUT ONCE YOU UPDATE YOUR ANTI VIRUS, IT BEGUN TO DISTINGUISHED YOUR DOWNLOADER AS BLOCK FOR YOUR CONNECTION. AS A SOLUTION, WE RECOMMEND TO REMOVE YOUR ANTI VIRUS AND USE OTHER THAT WILL NOT BLOCK YOUR IDM. THANK YOU.

My technician is correct! After that I totally uninstalled AVG Internet Security and found better software than it! And I found out MS Security Essentials.

I also observed that the fact that the Antivirus has all capabilities to scan everything even my downloads. But if I only use a free version or a professional version rather than an Internet Security version, my IDM will still work even installed with AVG as defense.

So long, net lovers!
