I am at the end of my rope! I am trying to download all the wonderful ST Collab links. I get to 85 % on a couple and then IE (vista) decides it has had enough and restarts. It then cancels the download I had been waiting 40 minutes for.

Is there any program I can use that will just pick up the download where it stopped?

install firefox and then use an add on called DownThemAll .. this is brilliant .. it will allow you to resume if it fails and you can pause downloads at any time

my suggestion exactly..even without 'download them all' Firefox works so much better and smoother for my downloads..wow, I was impressed. Hubby has been using them for a long time for that reason alone..and it's a free browser from Mozzilla...runs smoothly... I have Vista and no problems with it.

good luck, the kit is amazing! (and I'm sure everyone downloading at once isn't helping either)
