Downloading Error in Windows XP

Generally most sites have a ""click here" if your download does not start in x minutes" type of link.

Have you tries re-installing IE? Or running fix on it? What version of IE are you using? Have you downloaded the patches for it?

Open the IE browser and click on Tools->Internet Options->Advanced tab,check the list for the Install on demand box and Notify when Downloads Complete and make sure the box is checked,or click the Restore Defaults button
If you suspect that it is aproblem with the browser,Open the Control Panel,double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon,select IE and click on Remove,in the popup window,select to Repair IE.

Even Windows XP Home edition has a set up like Windows NT with user rights. Are you the system administrator? If not, that's why you're not able to download. I have not been able to tweak the default rights on my new home PC yet, but the default rights for the non-administrator is not allowed to download anything off the internet. Best wishes.
