Ok.. I've had this problem ever since I got Active Setup, and i've been trying hard as hell to fix it with no avail.  Whenever I run ActiveSetup (ie4setup.exe which i've downloaded multiple times from all over), when it gets to the part where it downloads the server list, NOTHING happens, a window just pops up immediatly saying that the
internet is either busy, or I should click advanced and enter a proxy, which my ISP doesnt have  (has firewall).  My modem doesnt even send ANY data, and when I click on retry, the window pops up a split second later.. Basically, ActiveSetup isnt sending or recieving ANY data,
because the bytes sent and recieved have been the same.  I really hope somone can help me on this, because I dont want to re-install Windows.

I guess you want to download IE4. Right?
Commented:
1. You can not do an IE4-install over the net through a firewall!
2. You should not do an IE4-install over the net without reliable, permanent connection!

what to do is:

go to the next paper-shop, purchase one of the fresh computer-magazines with CD-ROM an IE4 on that CD-ROM and install IE4 locally!
