IE7 not allowing links to download
Posted on 2008-02-08
Scenario: Windows XP SP2 all patches. Internet Explorer 7 all patches. No pop-up blockers that I'm aware. Yahoo Toolbar installed.
Problem: When clicking on a link in IE7 which links to a .wpd (Wordperfect file), or even a .doc file, IE7 says "Downloading from ..." but never does anything else, never downloading the link.
Troubleshooting: I've downgraded to IE6 and had the same problem. I upgraded to IE7 and had the same problem. I also deleted all temporary files, but had the same problem.
Question: How do I make IE7 download the files?
