I've been trying to download the JDK 1.3 product from the java home page. I have a Compaq Presario computer (Windows 98 o/s), and everytime I try to download (using the FTP option), it goes for a little while, then freezes the entire system. I wind up turning the machine off, then on, and when I try to download the product again, the same thing happens. I've tried this about 20 times, using different download options on the download page, but the system always freezes. Does anyone have any idea of why this is happening?
what platform/browser/service pack are you running? Have you tried downloading from different browsers? Do you get the same problem nomatter what kind of download you try (e.g. .zip, .exe....)? What directx version have you got? Is this the only case where your computer crashes?
