cannot download files from Internet Explorer

I am running Windows XP Pro SP2 and using Internet Explorer as my browser. I have tried to download from several sites including Mozilla Firefox for example. The download box appears and it looks as though files are being downloaded, however there is no estimated time shown or download speed. After waiting a considerable time, Internet Explorer informs me that it is unable to download. I have tried unblocking cookies and setting my security to low. These do not help.

Can somebody please advise me.

Many thanks
