Hi I'm trying to help a friend, but my Vista skills ain't that good. Problem: When downloading anything from the net, I click the link/file do start downloading. After that it starts counting the time left for the download. Than the strangest thing happens when it has reached 100% it says "Preparing to copy". It has not been this way earlier. Since I'm not near my friends computer I have to tell him what to do. So, any clues? I have asked if he has tried to "restore" the system as it was earlier - in a working condition, also asked if he has tried a re-installation of Vista. Could this also happen if the harddrive is running low on space or is old (age) and starting to fail?
