Hi again. I am posting again about the problem with unable to use IE8 in windows 7 to download from the member area, a problem that didnt happen on IE7 in XP and doesnt happen on other browsers in windows seven. Since I have a technet windows licence I was able to use premium microsoft support and they told me the issue is likely eset using non encrypted basic http auth which is now hard blocked by IE8 for security reasons. can see here on this url it is not a https link. http://www.eset.co.uk/Download/HomeEditions so can eset please either use a more secure auth mechanism or at the very least move the auth and member download page to an encrypted page. For a security company I would have thought that be common sense but it should also fix the auth issues with IE8.
