Most likely some security setting in IE7 is blocking you from downloading it. I'm not an IE7 user so can't be of much help as to what setting, hopefully someone else can.

What Anti-virus / Spyware / Firewall are you using? Perhaps one of those if interfering?
I'll ask for a tech who uses IE7 to stop by and see if he/she can help.

I just had a look, using Firefox, and then IE 7.0.
In both cases, the download that I was offered was identified as:
I didn't pursue it any further, nor complete the download, so may not be of much more help, without further information.
IFW (file type) is sometimes referring to "Image File Wrapper" and relates to a secure download procedure used by government offices.

Downloaded Installation Files
If "fulltiltsetup.exe" appears in either one of those folders, you might try deleting the file "fulltiltsetup.exe" and then attempting the download again.
Leave the other files and the folder untouched.... only delete the "fulltiltsetup.exe" file if it appears in one of those folders
let us know if that clears your situation

I had a quick look using Internet Explorer 7. The file I was offered was called FullTiltSetup.1.2.D0D17.efw and it was 17.9MB in size. The type was "UmxAttachmentFile".
While it may very well be a legitimate program, judging from the differences we've all recieved, I would stay away from this type of program/download.
If you really want to play poker, head on down to your local pub tournament. Don't risk your computer's security with these kinds of programs - especially if it requires entering your credit card details...
That's my two-cents worth...

I'll go ring the bell again for more help ... hang in there.
As a test, please install FireFox, see if that works correctly. Before you do a download after it's installed, click on Tools then Options and check the Always ask me where to save files box.

I've browsed through the IE 7.0 Command line options and settings.
I've browsed through the IE 7.0 - Tools - Internet Options
I only find options for how to handle "temporary internet files", which are not specifically what you are referring to in your topic of how "downloads" are handled.
When I select to Download, I get a "yellow" information bar and a nuisance screen asking if I see the "yellow" information bar
I click "yes" to indicate I've seen the information bar.
Then I go to the information bar and select - Download.
Next, a SAVE - RUN - Canel - panel appears (I select - SAVE)
Next, a SAVE AS (windows explorer) screen appears, where I can select the location I'd prefer to save the Download.
I highlight the Folder I prefer to SAVE into, then select the SAVE button.
I have not encountered the "efw" observation that you mention.
It is curious to me that your IE 7.0 is defaulting to save into a Temporary Folder location instead of allowing you to select a more permanent Folder location of your choice.
If you are willing to take the time for a practice run at downloading....
Please consider downloading Everest Home Edition 2.20 from MajorGeeks.
Everest 2.20 is a known-safe utility of good quality that creates a full inventory of your machines hardware components.
You might even like it and enjoy using it.
You'll see it recommended periodically to assist in identifying PCI devices and related Driver download links.
It also have a rudimentary Temperature and Voltage monitor that is often "good enough" to identify heat/voltage related problems. At least good-enough to rule-out a problem and/or provoke additional investigation.
But I digress.
Go to http://www.majorgeek...wnload4181.html
Select from any of the download source locations, and proceed through the process of downloading this utility.
The file name that is downloaded is: Everesthome220.exe --- it is an "application" and its file size is 3.98mb
Walk through the download.
You should encounter all the same "steps" that I listed above.
If your experience diverges from the "steps" above, please let us know where/when and what appears differently.
