Unable to download anything from the net. I have Windows XP

I am unable to dowload anything on my PC, I cannot even upgrade Microsoft Security Essentials. Basically, I initiate a download, but it will download 99% of something and then just stop...regardless of what the download is. I run security scans with Microsoft Security, but it never picks up anything. This is driving me crazy!!! Help!

    resett IE to default settings
    Tools>Internet Options> Advanced tab
    Click Reset
    Click Reset
    Close and reopen IE. Try downloading something.
    try downloading with IE clean, without any addons (U can consider this as a safemode for IE)
