in EmbeddedWBBeforeNavigate2 event I have an own code that I wish to run just when I start to load a new page. The problem is that when I click a link and start to download a file the code run too.  

How can I separate these? I wish to run my code just for navigation and ignore it for downloading files.

I needed to do something similar, with the difference that I was loading the pages from disk and the links that the user clicked on were to be opened in the default browser.

the way I fixed it was to have a global boolean value, inner = false, and checking against it in the event.

in your case it's simpler.
before you load the page (you issue a navigate command yourself, from code), you set inner=true.
then in the event, if inner=true then execute the code AND set inner to false;

this way, the code executes only when you load the pages.

now, if you want to allow the user to open pages by clicking on links, things go harder. you will have to also check against the url and make sure it's not a file (the protocol is not ftp:// and not file:// and mayeb some other stuff). you can also use the headers and see the mime type. as I said, it gets trickier
