Something isn't right here as this certainly should not be happening.
In IE8 go to Tools/Internet Options/Advanced and click Reset.
OK any prompts and click Apply and OK
Close and reopen IE and re-enable all the add-ons via Tools/manage Add-ons.
See if that helps.
Do you have any other protection software installed and any other firewall?
As I see that you are downloading from a possibly risky source (hence the Siteadvisor red flag) have you checked for spyware? Install, update and run the free versions of both of these tools:
Let them clean everything they find and reboot if asked.
I have used the Free Studio program before on one of my other computers and I have had no problems with it. I was still able to download everything, as what that program does. Downloads videos, mp3's and changes video formats. It's rated falsly by McAfee.
Download the second one malwarebytes in "Safe Mode with Networking" reached by tapping F8 while booting up. Save it to your desktop and run it in that mode from there.
From what you say the machine has a major infection which has corrupted Windows.
If that doiesn't work, then I would say you have no option but to format and reinstall.
You could, if you have access to another machine in order to make it, try one of our moderators Secured2k's BootCD: http://community.mcafee.com/showthread.php?t=231079&highlight=bootcd
Any problems with that particular programme post in that thread.
On the other computer, it wont accept the adobe flashplayer download. Thats since I downloaded and installed the McAfee Total Security 2009. I don't think this brand new computer, with vista, since it is very hard to infect, be infected already.
The catch is the other computer. As soon as I downloaded that McAfee Program on there, you can't download.
Something you are using is reacting with McAfee to prevent downloads.
Best speak with Technical Support Chat, link at top left of this page.
I was informed that nothing was wrong with the download and upload speed as they told me to check it. My providers told me if I was unable to download & upload, the speedtest would not start, which it did start. Three successful speed tests. So it is not problems with the ISP. This takes me back to where I was with McAfee. I went to the online chat technition for McAfee and he told me to press "Windows Key + R" then in Run type "services.msc". Disabled all services except real time scan. Did that. Nothing happened, still had the problem.
There is something within the firewall that is doing that.
Unless you physically changed the firewall settings to lockdown that's impossible, unless there's a 3rd party software interfering with it.
I'm sorry but Technical Support Chat are going to have to go into your machine to investigate this. They can also escalate this to a higher level.
