No matter how many times I try I just can't get 'The Bogey Man' to download. It always freezes at some point in the download...is there any way to fix it?

    Have you tried deleting your browsers cache/temporary internet files?

    In recent Firefox and Internet Explorer you can delete the cache/temporary internet files with CTRL-Shift-Del.

    In Firefox you would only select "Cache".

    In Internet Explorer only select "Temporary Internet Files".
    Uncheck all other boxes in each case.


    If that doesn't work you could try a different browser just for testing purposes.

  • I tried all of that on both browsers and it still hasn't worked.

    Do you have any firewall software running that could block it?

    You can try downloading after a clean boot to find out if anything interferes.

    Msconfig for Windows XP:
    To Boot Clean in Windows XP

    1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG --> Click OK
    2. On the General tab, choose Selective Startup
    3. Uncheck Process SYSTEM.INI file
    4. Uncheck Process WIN.INI file
    5. Uncheck Load Startup Items
    6. Click on the Services tab
    7. At the bottom, check Hide All Microsoft Services
    8. Uncheck all boxes in the window or click the button labeled Disable All
    6. Click OK
    7. Click Restart
    8. After reboot, run the game to see if it works.

    After performing the necessary steps, restore your system by doing the following:

    1. Click Start --> Run --> Type MSCONFIG--> Click OK
    2. On the General tab, choose Normal Startup
    3. Click OK
    4. Click YES, when asked to restart your computer

  • I tried it and it still freezes at some point in the download. I even tried to download it on a friend's PC and it didn't work either. I am starting to think it had to be something with the actual file I received...but I have no idea what I could do about that.

  • Now ive tried it from two different pcs and it won't work. Is there any way to get the download from a different source or something similar?
