XP / IE6 can't download files with .exe extention.
Posted on 2003-02-25
I'm having a problem with a laptop connected to the company network that is running windows xp.
It will no longer download .exe files from web pages through internet explorer.
All other files will download without problems.
Right clicking the .exe file to hit save as doesn't work either.
I recently uninstalled and re-installed internet explorer, but it didn't fix the problem.
The problem is not related to any network settings and we have several indentical laptops side by side that are not experiencing this problem.
I have read posts of others who are having the same problem, but I havn't yet found a solution here, or anywhere else on the net.
If anyone can help with this, please let me know.
