I have an imac and am unable to download any programs or applications or anything.
What are you using to download?
Try a different browser or try downloading something other then a .dmg file.
That's pretty vauge. What method are you using to download? What happens when you try? You might find help here, but you will have to provde details on what you've tried and what happens when you try.
Looks like jointsmoking beat me to it. We can help you, but we need more details.
OK, we can assume that you have an internet connection that is working as you are able to access and post on Mac Rumors.
So go to the MacRumors home page, right click on the picture accompanying the ad for Snow Leopard in the top right hand corner, right click and select 'Save Image To Downloads'.
Firstly, with regard to the browser i'm using, I've tried safari, firefox and opera and none of them work.
It happens with any application or program and when i try to download it I just get a black screen that says nothing.
I am able to download the picture.
Also I know this question is in the complete wrong place but I was in a rush.
Care to take some screenshots? The fact that you cannot download an App makes little sense. The .dmg should just download, whether you are able to install it might be a different question.
as a test go to adium.im and click the download link. Safari should download it straight away (Firefox will ask to save) to your Downloads folder indicated by the Downloads stack bouncing. depending if you have downloads to auto open (default setting in Safari) the disk image will open and then drag Adium to the Applications folder link to install (in this case).
Adium is a great app BTW... its a great multi service chat client.
I just tried to download boxee and it worked.
I then tried to download pathfinder and I didn't work. I've attached what I got.
Adium also came up with the same result.
Do you have any downloader app's installed?
I have got no idea. Sorry I can't help
Wrong forum section.
I hope that didn't come across as curt, but you may get more help by posting in the right place.
I probably should have mentioned this before but I completely forgot. Just before this started to happen I was playing with my download folder and trying to clear it up and I somehow managed to delete everything in it.
I'm not sure what you mean by downloader apps thegoldenmackid.
my client had the same issue a while back, its some kind of firewall setting in your router, during the download you are loosing bits.
How did you fix it?
