I do not know much about this player, is it that it is using too much memory? If it mentions that it is vulnerable, if you disable it, does it continue to happen?

Adobe Acrobat plug-in is for reading PDF files but I deactivated it but it had no effect on problem, but thanks it was worth a try. Thought! is it possible to download BBC TV programs without, and by-passing the iPlayer Downloads app?

Hi I am not sure if this is possible: implies that it is necessary to download items from the bbc player site,

No I have the right permissions as living in the UK. I can create a new file in the storage location, so not that. Thanks though. It is not the end of the world as I can watch the programs live at the time if I remember or watch later from the iPlayer ,without downloading and with almost no buffering. Plus can download to my iPhone via iPlayer App without any problems. I would just like to know the reason why it does not work on my PC. Cheers

ran a File Explorer search for iPlayer Downloads to locate about 8 locations which I visited, trying to open files if possible. Then tried to download iPlayer Downloads again. This time it worked and the log showed a hiccup at some speech area but got ovber it and started working

[02/01/2015 17:01:52.768] [ERROR] Received a command line request that couldn't be handled: C:\Users\gordon\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Speech

So somehow it started to work don not know why but happy now
