Hi. Why has my downloader stopped working on my laptop?
I am convinced with Hovsep A. Use CCleaner to remove the temp files. Often temp files create issues in the functioning of software. Or you can reinstall and then again install your application.
Oron is right further details are needed if there is error message then supply.
if it is add-on software you can reinstall.
try to clean windows with CCleaner do clean chrome temp files
sometime can be DNS problems,
Good answers above. I would also run " Anti -Malwarebytes" which you can download from CNET. Malware can affect downloaders also, plus this will check to see if there is any other malware lurking on your computer. I also agree with reinstalling and getting a fresh program
Can you give us some more information - what version of Windows are you using, what downloader and what web browser are you using? Also, what actually happened? Did you get an error message or did a download job simply stop in the middle?
