GPO disallowing File Downloads...but need exceptions

By jeffh1091 ·
I am fairly familiar with Group Policies. I have a Windows 2003 Server DC, and clients are Windows XP Pro SP2. I have always disallowed any file downloads from Internet Explorer to prevent toolbar installs, viruses, games, etc. It's come up now that there are actually some files that need to be allowed (.PDF, .XLS, etc) and users can't because file download and "Save As" are disabled. How do you add exceptions to the rule??

are coming from an intranet site you could allow those sites to be placed in the trusted sites list.
You may want to consider allowing the downloads and then using GPOs to manage the restrict software and manage add-ons.
restrict software uses;
Manage add-ons;
