Microsoft Security won't let me download

By Gassniffer69 ·
Anytime I try to download any file off the Internet, I get a security alert that says
"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded." I have tried changing the Internet settings with no success. If anyone could help me it would be greatly appreciated.

Try these two methods for changing the security settings (if neither work go to Method #3):

Method #1
1. To lower the security setting in Internet Explorer:
2. In the browser's Tools menu, select Internet Options.
3. In the Internet Options dialog box, click the Security tab.
4. In the "Select a Web content zone" control, click the Internet icon.
5. In the "Security level for this zone" area, reset security to Medium.
6. Click OK.

Method #2
1. Select Tools Menu from Tool Bar
2. Select Internet Options
3. Select Security tab
4. Select Custom Level button
5. Scroll down to Downloads
6. Under File Downloads - If the File Downloads is not disabled you will not be able to download files.
To enable file downloads check the enable option.

Method #3
If neither of these work, read this article on the registry settings for IE security zones
