Download failed: Something about Proxy Settings (92 posts) [closed]

I had the original Youtube converter and it was working fine until it just decided to not work. I checked into why and one of the reasons said that I'd need the updated version. So, I downloaded the updated version and IT won't let me download. It always says "download failed: error ocurred". There was a button that said "Learn More" so I clicked that. But, all it said was "check proxy settings" and the second part "contact support" was a link. I clicked that and it led me to nothing. I want my music back! Help me!

Thanks, finally worked. I uninstalled it and everything. Then I thought that my laptop was going funny as it worked on my sisters. Even she didn't know. And it was something as simple as un-ticking the box. :)

@suleman, what version exactly do you use? Are you logged in at the moment of downloading? Your links work for me.
@Red Baron, does this happen with all the links? Can you send me the examples? Please, check whether you're logged in, or not, when you download.
@Court, that's great! Thank you for informing!

Thanks Alice. I tried your suggestion which involved the 'CCleaner' approach.

Software now works fine!
