I haven't seen anything from Malicious File Download 12, but #24's still there .___.

 

Seems that it rarely acts though.

I don't think so, but the time it jsut happened, it was when like...you click a download link, and page opens, and that page makes your computer download it, there's nothing on the page though.

Could you give an example please, I think I know what you mean and that generally happens when the link is to a direct download and not a web page

That's what I meant, when it was a link to a direct download.

OK when a direct download is linked to IE will initially open a fresh page, start the download and the page should then close. Is that happening
