Downloading freezes I.E.

By asplus ·
I am trying to download a .zip file from a mirror site on my laptop. When I click on the file to download, it seems that the process hangs undefinitely. I was able to download the file from my XP desktop without a problem. Any idea? Both machines are running SP2.

I do not understand your question. I am downloading from a public web site.
