    when you dl a file off of the web example MSN, a web page, where dose XP put it if the transfer was cancelled for some reason??. i was transfering a file over msn and it failed around half was though. dose xp delete it or store the half dl file somewhere??. ive looked in temp folder and My Received Files.

    i dont save it, but if you have the background intelligent transfer service running, it will "save" the part thats downloaded and resumes it when you try to download again

    look in C:\Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files

    or open explorer and type %temp%
    press enter then type ..\Temporary Internet Files and hit enter

    Have you ever tried a file with a checksum after you resumed that way?

    Seems to me they never match.

    Have you rebooted?
