i have a similar problem to you.
ive just got a new computer in the last few days with vista home 32bit
i didnt set it up myself because im pretty useless with computers, a
computer technician who built the computer did it for me.
i first noticed the problem when downloading itunes and avg antivirus.
when downloading it would get to about 40% and then freeze without showing
any signs of continuing. i left it for an hour or so and it remained at the
same %. i tried this over and over turning firewall on and off making new
user accounts etc and nothing worked. i managed to download firefox and then
proceded to pause and continue the download over and over and it eventually
completed. but it still streams about half of videos and then pauses
indefinitely. its driving me up the wall.
