are you using a download manager? I know with down them all in FF I can stop and start downloads in part

Depends on what browser you are using.

If you were using IE8, simply reopen the browser, then either go to tools - View downloads, or press ctrl+j to open the download windows, click on resume and it will carry on from where it stopped.

Try http://aria2.sourceforge.net/

Might be able to get it to resume the file, but without a download log (you didn't use aria2 on the download already) you need to set a special command-line switch. Can't remember what it was now.

university is blocking your link Agent_24

It may be because that program can support bittorrent downloads as well.

But if they block the entire Sourceforge site, you should loudly complain!

try direct link here: http://downloads.sourceforge.net/project/aria2/stable/aria2-1.12.1/aria2-1.12.1-mingw32msvc-build1.zip?r=http%3A%2F%2Fsourceforge.net%2Fprojec ts%2Faria2%2Ffiles%2Fstable%2Faria2-1.12.1%2F&ts=1316565839&use_mirror=superb-dca2

Or if you can access rapidshare etc I could upload it to there for you
