Re-directed when downloading files

  octopush 07:09 27 Dec 2006

When trying to download files from websites outside of work I right click and choose file, save as etc. I am re directed to the work document library and the file is changed from an MP3 file to a html doc called doclibrary. The helpdesk reassure me I have not been blocked as these are legitimate e-books and mp3 teaching tools. Started suddenly and is not the case 100% of the time. Any Ideas. Using win xp prof, and IE ver 6.0. IT helpdesk have not got a clue ;O)

If this is an IE problem (unlikely), then try Firefox click here, this will quite happily run alongside IE. It is also possible, but again unlikely, that the redirection is being done by your computer HOSTS file, so try renaming the file OLDHOSTS (C:\WINDOWS\system32\drivers\etc\hosts). If the redirection is happening at the download site, then I can't think of anything you can do about it.
