In the last few months, I have had an intermittent problem with downloading. If I want to access a pdf file from a website or access audio, I get a dialogue box that says "my current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded". When I go into internet options or control panel to try and lower my security setting, it will usually tell me that the recommended security setting for my zone is "medium" and will not accept the change. I once defeated this problem by turning off windows firewall, but that doesn't work anymore. I suspect I need to enable or disable something in custom security settings in control panel, but nothing I have found yet seems to do the job. Any ideas?
Thanks for your help. Happy new year.
