  • server connection reset

    The error message I've probably received the most in my life is "connection with the server was reset." Often I get this when I'm trying to download something. Are there ways to stop getting this message, or get it less often?

    This error normally means that the download timed out causing the server to close or reset the connection. If you are using a dialup connection or your broadband connection is being slowed for some reason it can cause this to happen.

    First check in safe mode with networking.

    To start your computer in safe mode, you can refer the below link:

    Start your computer in safe mode

    Click Start and type CMD in the search box.

    In the command prompt type:

    ipconfig /flushdns

    This will clear your DNS cache.

    After the command run try to download the file again.

    Also try resetting Internet Explorer (IE) & register files.

    1. Click Start, please type "inetcpl.cpl" (without quotation marks) in the Start Search bar and press Enter to open the Internet options window.

    2. Switch to the Advanced tab.

    3. Click the Reset Internet Explorer Settings button.

    4. Click Reset to confirm the operation.

    5. Click Close when the resetting process finished.

    6. Uncheck Enable third-party browser extensions option in the Settings box.

    7. Click Apply, click OK.

    8. Restart IE.

    To reset Internet Explorer automatically, click the Fix this problem link in the below article:

      I'm having the same problem and none of what you suggested worked. I didn't have this problem when I was running Vista. Not sure what the problem is.

        Hi daemon9,

        What`s your OS and IE version?
        Do you still have those problem if you used another browser, such as mozilla firefox, chrome or opera?
