IE 6. Downloads

By pcenterprises ·
Running Win98,IE6.0 all patchs applied. When I click on a download link for an exe file IE opens a new browser window with the file name at the end of the address in the address bar. The window just sits their no download. Same for an ftp site. NO open/save dialog box. I can right click on the link and get the dialog box and download the file. Any help appreciated.

First check the for updated Java Script

Open IE,click on Help menu and check that you have IE 128 bit encryption installed on machine

The last option is to use the Add/Remove Programs,higlight IE and click the Remove button,when pop up menu appears click the Repair option

Thanks for the info. I found the answer on another website. The problem occured because of an incomplete unistall of netscape some time ago. the answer is:
Netscape-Style Plug-ins Do Not Work After Upgrading Internet Explorer
If it is only .exe files, then read on and see if this is relevant:
Remove the plugin with Regedit.exe
Start/Run menu applet execute: Regedit.exe
Navigate down to this key and remove it, after exporting it as a normal
safety precaution.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet
Explorer\Plugins\Extension\.exe
If that key exists, then you will see what plugin has been installed. The
key does not normally exist.
