    Sorry if this has been asked before, but I can't find anything on searching the forum.
    When I try to download a .dmg file, say ONYX or Safari 4 beta, the main windows of Safari and Firefox go grey and nothing seems to happen - the download manager box stays empty. I don't have any trouble in downloading the updates from apple via software updates. E-mail works fine.
    I have recently updated my router to a new Apple Extreme base station and the modem has been reliable for year; both seem to be working well.
    I've presumably got some setting to change on my iMac but for the life of me I can't work out where.
    Running Leopard on a new iMac 4Gb 24", all software up to date as of last night.
    Any help would be gratefully accepted.

    Evil SpeedDownload

    Got it. I had removed Onspeed SpeedDowload from my computer manually because the uninstaller wouldn't work. However, I had missed a couple of small elements buried deep all over the place. I have just finally got rid of this nasty little program and all is well again.
