For some time now I have not been able to download programs or do things like submit bids on ebay using IE 6.0.29. I get the message "your security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded". I have looked everywhere for the IE setting that is not allowing me to download but cannot locate it. I have lowered the security setting to medium but still cannot download.

Any suggestions on where to look to solve this problem?

Were the setting you lowered in the Intranet Zone? It should, by default, be on Medium (low). Do you have the latest service pack for IE 6? How to Obtain the Latest Service Pack for Internet Explorer 6.

This may be the solution, but requires you to edit the registry:

The Tools | Internet Option | Security tab | Custom Level setting of the zones to low does not resolved the issue.
Resolution

Set the following registry keys to 0x00000000. When set to 0x00000003 the above error is caused.

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones]
"1807"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\1]
"1807"=dword:00000000

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Internet Settings\Zones\2]
"1807"=dword:00000000

Always make a backup if you edit the registry. Do this as a last resort. If none of these keys are listed, then that isn't the problem.
