    I am trying to download some pictures off the internet to make some icons. The phone tells me its "starting download" but in the notification pulldown it says either "9k=.bin" or "2q==.bin" and the download just runs and runs and nothing every comes in. I can't clear it either until I go into downloads and force stop it. Ive tried turning the phone off and on. I've tried going into apps, data manager, force stop, and cleared cache and data. Ive tried downloading from many different sites and many different images, but the download notification is always one of those two and nothing will come in. Ive tried 4G and wifi. Whats up with that? Any ideas? I've googled it and searched the forums and cant find an answer.

    I would clear the cache partition from boot mode. I had to this on my brothers RAZR when it wouldn't install apps. Not the exact problem, but it's worth a try. If you don't know how to do that, i can walk you through it.

    Try going to Menu>Settings>Apps>All>Download Manager and Force Stop. Then Clear Data and Cache.

    That is kind of strange as I just looked and I only have one Download Manager called DOWNLOADS. The only thing I can think of is a third-party app or installed along with a browser of which I don't know any that would do that.
