Recently I finally decided to come back to MS to try BB out with some friends, but my internet is pure crap, worst download speed IMO. It took about 5 hours just for MS to reach 700MB, then it randomly stops (ALWAYS AT 700MB) and I don't know what to do. Before you ask, yes, I have enough space on my computer for MS. But it just randomly stops downloading, my internet will still work, but MS will just stop for no reason. How can I get it to download faster? Or just not randomly stop? Help please!

I am no computer genius but I can recommend using CCleaner and Defraggler. Those programs will get rid of your crap and stuff. Possibly try Game Booster? Idk, those should just speed your computer a little

I use CCleaner lol. But I've never heard of Defraggler, so I might try that out. Thanks for the help. Any other suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

download the offline installer. But thats at .03k/bs per second. Dude, you gotta check your stuff in the internet. Thats too slow.

Defragging won't do much, to be honest. You should just use CCleaner, then reboot. After that run the MS installer as an administrator, and if you could - have no windows open. I'd run it as an admin and let it go overnight.

Make sure you have no peer to peer programs like Utorrent/limewire/frostwire open. Cancel all current downloads and end all unneccesary procees by pressing CTRL ALT DEL.

Defrag your HDD through the disk defreger on the control pannel.

Make sure nobody else is using your wifi/internet connection. You'd be suprised how easy this is...

No. Do not use the download option.
I had that problem too. It's a glitch. It just stops before it's completed and when you try to install, error.
Log into the website, and click start game, few boxes pop up, and such and you just press the OK options. The downloader starts, etc.

Edit: PM me when you've downloaded it. I can help you restart and crap. (:[/quote]

Oh tyvm bby gurl. But uhm, I do log into the site and press the start game button, that's the installer that always freezes, unless you're talking about another one? The one that shows up is white and says nexon installer.
