Do you use a downloader programme.Were you able to download with no problems before this event.What are you trying to download.Have you any anti-virus and/or spyware programmes installed.

You may need to repair IE. If it's possible Go to Add Remove Programs double click Microsoft Internet Explorer choose Repair then try again to download

or is it just zip

I've got spybot, avg anti virus, and norton internet security installed. When I disable internet security, I still get the problem. I can't download free screensavers etc. I always choose "save" file rather than "open" for safety sake, but i can only get the file if i click "open".

Also if i right click to save a picture ie6 shuts down, but i can email it to myself?????
Anyone help?????

I've tried that too but ie6 still closes itself down.

The file download box does appear but freezes. I can't even close it down. I have to reboot to get rid of it.
