Thanks monday90, l8forwork, Chilcotin for all the fine suggestions. I think I have determined what the problem is. I live in Costa Rica, a third world country, --are you with me? Well, I don't have broadband where I live , so I went to an Internet cafe. There system is what I believe is causing my bad downloads. The only thing that's good here are the bananas. As for as technology, they're about as sharp as a marble. I will wait a few more weeks and download in the states.
