Windows XP Pro. . . I've never had a problem downloading programs from the internet until about a week ago. Since then, I receive a message that states that my security setting won't let me download the file. I haven't changed my security settings. In order to be able to download the program, I turned off my firewall (Sygate), and all pop-up stoppers/anti-virus/adware/malware programs and tried to download the file but I received the same message. I've also tried changing the severity of my settings in Internet Options from medium to low but my pc wouldn't let me do it. (Who's the boss here anyway?)
I'm talking about safe programs, such as RealPlayer, Macromedia Flash Player, etc.
What settings can I change so that I can download files that I want?
