certain sites, the following happens. When I click on the "download"
link, the file download dialog box appears. It says it's getting file
information and the little files go flying across, but the estimated
time left, download to and transfer rate slots are empty and the "save
to" dialog box never appears. But according to Naviscope, a file is
being received. But then just as the file appears to be fully
downloaded, I get the error message "Internet Explorer cannot download
(file) from (download site). Internet Explorer was not able to open
the internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot
be found. Please try later." As I say, this doesn't happen with all
Maybe this is a clue. When I tried to download AOL Instant Messenger,
I had the same problem. But down at the bottom of the page under
"help". it said, "If you're unable to download the installer, try the
FTP download." I did and that worked. In that case, I got a file
security warning and clicked on "run".
What the heck is going on here??? This is driving me nuts! I've
disabled Norton firewall and antivirus, made sure that the "do not
save encrypted pages to disk" option isn't checked. Any suggestions
will be MOST gratefully received.
