Hi Sorry only just read this.
When you login do you see the normal member's page - i.e. no ads and 'Member's area'?
If so - then you are logging in ok. The problem is not general and the site is fine.
Can you tell me what exactly happens when you click on a file?
I have just taken a screenshot of a download when logged in -- the download starts almost instantly and I am on a basic copper telephone connection.
Think global. It's the world we live in
