That fix was for IE 5.5 so that would be the reason for your error.

Try resetting your Security level.....In IE go to Tools>Internet Settings>Security.

Try restting to default level (medium)or click on the Custom button and scroll through the list until you find the Download section......make sure the enable file download button is checked.

Other than that try with your firewall temporarily disabled..that may be blocking your download.

Have you tried repairing IE click here or consider the IE7 release candidate upgrade click here and install a fresh version of IE (don't let it import any settings from your previous version).

Another setting to change in IE6 you can try is in Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and chose to reset all advanced settings to default (or all settings to default...whatever of the two options you have).

Tools / Internet Options / Security / Custom Level / Look under Downloads, file downloads and make sure the radio button is enabled.

Close IE and try again to download from here click here
