Whenever I start any downloading it stop on 99% and never completes. I changed my download manger and stopped firewall, but all in vain. Problem contiunes to persist. What is causing this problem and what is the solution?

Try adding some details about your environment such as OS and downloading method. – Ярослав Рахматуллин Mar 16 '13 at 18:02

I just ran into this last week, they would get to 99% and then "fail", or just sit forever. As Daniel Hicks suggests, it was the Anti-virus.

I found that if I went and renamed the .partial files Internet Explorer makes, the files actually worked fine.

Disabled the anti-virus and files started downloading fine. Replaced it with a different (newer) AV product and they've been fine since.

So, perhaps try temporarily disabling or uninstalling your current AV package.
