McAfee altered some setting on my computer -- after installing their fire wall + virus software, I can no longer download files.  I un-installed their fire-wall software, but I still get the following message while trying to download a file from internet explorer, and even from msn explorer (that butterfly thing)....

"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"
