    Hi ,if you go into IE6.

    Click on the Internet Symbol, and click on the custom settings tab, there should be a section for file downloads all you have to do is the following;

    Downloads

    Automatic prompting for file downloads

    =Disable

    File download

    =Enable

    hi, i don't think it's the download settings. i can't remember which one it is though. but if you go into internet options and i think it's the security settings change it from custom to medium and it should fix it. you'll have to reconfigure your settings though afterward.

    Terrible idea - is this a security site or not? All that does is enable any web page to download w/o asking and as Ice has posted, has nothing to do with this problem.
