Are you running any type of firewall or security software on your network?  It sounds like what happens when a firewall is configured to not allow downloads for a corporate network.

Are all the downloading computers on the same domain (meaning Microsoft Active Directory)?

Or are all the computers failing to download from the same Internet domain (meaning http://www.someplace.com)?

Yes we are using a watchguard firebox router. I will try and disable all everything then post back.
