    File upload problem (XP Home 2002 service pack 1)

    Problem with uploading large files.

    I am dealing with on line photo printing services and have a problem with uploading photo files lately.
    Example: I want to upload a 19.4 MB jpg file and the upload stops at 70%. The printing service I was always using could not come up with an answer to this problem, as I was suspecting a problem on there side, so I tried another one. The upload attempt to the new printing service showed exactly the same problem, the upload stopped at 70% and indicated an error. I have to assume now, that the problem rests with my PC. But what do I look for? This fine forum has always been able to come up with solutions to my problems, and I hope I can impose on you again.

    As an aside, is that like a 4x6 foot poster or a panorama of the coast of California? Gosh that's a big file.

    Thanks Bob,
    I checked out the article and I am not surprised that yet again MS managed to screw up something with a patch. However before I had a chance to read your reply I had investigated my problem further and zeroed in on Symantec Internet Security, and wouldn

    Although it looks like you've found the answer, keep your eye on ROADRUNNER. I have a few acquaintences who use them and they have strict limits of some kind on upload size, at least via email. One of my friends had to send some pictures to me one at a time in separate emails because of RR's limitations.

    I am into photography and have my larger photos printed by Ofoto. The file is for a 16 x 20 at 300 pixel/inch for optimum quality prints.

    Thanks for the advice, but before I started investigating my problem I called my roadrunner tech service and was told there is no upload file size limitation. Also we are not talking about an e-mail attachment.
    After contacting Symantec about the behavior of the Internet Security software I was advised,

    You could always consider dumping NIS and going with something else. There are others out there that are quite good. Check/search the Spyware -AV - Safe computing board for more thorough discussions.
