    Well, now wait. What exactly are you trying to download and where? Some websites have downloading certain things disabled. There's no point in attacking IE when it is much more likely the website is at fault.

    Reset through IE & above link didn't solved the issue.

    Uninstalled IE 11. The version on the system is now 8.

    Checked windows for updates, its showing IE 9 along with few other updates in imp updates & 10 & 11 in optional updates. Can I skip 9 & 10 & directly install 11?

    I think you need to have them all checked.

    Hello,

    http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2847882

    According to this, the IE11 installer will try to install all of the prerequisite components so you should be OK to just install IE11, unless the install ends with errors then you may need to be sure the prerequesites are all installed and do them manually.

    IE 8 - Download was working
    IE 9 - Download was working

    IE 10 - Same prob, download not working.

    I guess download will not work with IE 11 too.

    What should I do now?

    Are you able to delete the temp internet files folder in safe mode or from another account with admin privileges?

    It will then be rebuilt on reboot.

    I have only 1 account & thats admin account.
    Wasn't able to delete temp inter files folder in safe mode.

    Can you plzz post few screenshots for me if you have Win 7 64?
    On Win 7 64, temporary internet files folder is in users-username-appdata-local-microsoft-windows-temporary internet files, right?

    Plzz post screeshots of-------

    temporary internet files - properties - security tab
    temporary internet files - properties - advanced - permissions
    temporary internet files - properties - advanced - owner


    I have taken the permission & it solved the issue. Just want to see how it is on another Win 7 64 system.

    Dont know why it happened.

    Temporary Internet Files folders properties showed owner as unable to show owner so I took the ownership with the program TakeOwnership & it solved the issue.
