Hi, i am able to download dmsetup and run it but once it tries to download "compatibility checker" the internet freezes on and off and the download restarts repeatedly. Other than that the internet and downloading functions perfectly. (DSL through a router) My computer is an AMD Quad core phrenom 9600 , 2GB ram , running windows xp sp2. I am 99% sure i just need a windows update but i dont know which one. Any help is muchly appreciated. Thanks.
Then I would uninstall McAfee, using the MCPR tool in my signature, then consider using a free application that isn't so fussy, such as Avast Free Anti-Virus (it's good) and/or Comodo Security Suite or just the firewall part of it, or similar.
