IE 6.0.2800 cannot download pdf files...

Hi!

When I try to download a file, such as PDF, using Internet Explorer 6, I get the following error: Internet Explorer cannot download...
Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site.

Is there a way to fix this?

Try opening IE

go to tools --> internet options --> security (tab)

click on Internet and press "custom level)

scroll down and see if you have enabled "file download"
