Thanks for responding Charles. I had looked up the error but couldn't think 
what might cause it. I am trying to find out if there's a proxy involved 
but I'm pretty sure the user doesn't even know what that is. I also 
suggested they turn off any virus checker on the off chance that it's 
scanning downloads and truncating the data (though I don't know if that's 
how they work exactly.) I know the connection was closed and it isn't a 
timeout.

If anyone can think of anything else that might be involved I'll suggest 
that too. It's a puzzle. Dozens of other users have no trouble with the 
same file.
