When I try to download a files such as one from TrandMicro (HouseCall - Free Online Virus and Spyware Scan)
A small window opens stating from the top:-
You have chosen to open
which is a: Binary File
Would you like to save this file
Save File or Cancel
When I click on the Save File ..... Either another window open saying
The file could not be saved because you do not have the proper permissions. Choose another save directory.
Nothing at all happens at all, the window just disappears
Can you please help as I would like to do a virus scan and can't ....
Thankyou Vicky ........... :-(
Is this problem that you cannot save or cannot open .exe files?
You will have to look at your UAC (permissions) settings.
Have you tried opening your browser with the rightclick 'run as Administrator'?
Chronus, It must be this one: "Getting started with HouseCall. Click Start Scan (32 Bit) or Start Scan (64 Bit) to begin. Please note that HouseCall requires a small download before it can scan your computer" HousecallLauncher.exe
You have it exactly... So what do I do ...?
Sorry for triple posts, but just found this. It could be a setting in IE even if you are using FF ClickHere
I have just read this post ..
Yet another High Security Problem with Internet Explorer
By Michael Horowitz
I am sure this is it as he mentions the same error window pop-up
All I have to do is now find the file propertise for an .EXE ....duh
This should read .....
Right click an exe for Properties.
btw I often use Panda ActiveScan (I presume a similar scanner)
It will only work from Internet Explorer, not Firefox.
So try a different browser? Which are you using?
Just an idea.
How do I find an EXE ?
