hey cesse, thnx for reply

i had already seen the faq about those error codes, and even tho i wasn't sure any of them specifically applied to error code i got, i had already deleted files in temp folder, and i have ooooooodles of space on hard drive

and as i said in orig post, i'm sure it's not firewall or av program blocking it since i run them all the time and they never interfered with a dl from this site b4, and i've dloaded many many games from here

other ideas anyone? thnx

odd, maybe it was hiccup in download system that sorted itself out when i did a test dl of another game when this one was throwing the error ... and the test dl worked just fine btw

at any rate, did re-dl of this game afterwards and it just finished installing so all seems well

course i haven't tried to PLAY it yet, lol ... but i'm sure it's fine now

thnx anyway folks!

Okletmewin12--I have in the past encountered false positives from my virus (on isolated occasions) when downloading from a site I previously had no problems with and trusted. What I did was disable my virus since I trusted the site), download the game, then put my virus back on. I don't really want to recommend this (as everyone has different programs running, so I guess do it at your own discretion--I would not want to be responsible for you having a problem at a later date. In my book, I trust the BFG site and would not expect they would have anything out there with a virus in it.

I can tell you I downloaded the demo without any problem. Haven't purchased yet as there may be a few small bugs toward the end of the game (see the other threads in this forum)

Again, this is just a suggestion and do so at your own risk. I am not tech savvy, so if you do encounter a problem I wouldn't be able to help you!
