Downloading with IE

By bigfootmm ·
Recently, I have been unable to download files on any number of sites. On this site (TechRepublic)I have no problem downloading, but on others when the download supposedly begins, I see a blank page, or a page with a piece of broken film pictured onit, and immediately thereafter the status bars says "done," though nothing is downloaded. No dialogue boxes show up either.

Any ideas on the source of my problem? At one time I was about to load Go!Zilla, but I became aware that I was really signing up to receive ads until the cows come home, so I declined that installation. I don't see it anywhere on my system, but who knows?

I get similar from time to time on Netscape v4.74. Used to go throught a lot of reset (click X, restart, reboot, etc.). Lately I have just been doing RELOAD and more often than not the page loads correctly.

Firstly go to My Computer-Control Panel-Add/Remove Programs,higlight Microsoft Internet Explorer,then clic on Add/remove button. A box will pop up Giving You the Choice of Add a Component or Repair Internet Explorer.
Choose Repair then click OK.
The Screen will then tell You What to Do.
After reboot open I E and click on Tools then Internet Options.Then click on the security tab and click on Default level,then OK.This will hopefully solve Your Problem.Ed.

Sorry, but I'd already done that and did it again with no change in the result. Still can't download from most sites. Get a blank page with "done" on the status line. This occurs a second or two after attempting download a file.
