I have tried onbeforenavigate event in which I called Axwebbrowser.Stop() method. This is also not working.

On downloadBegin event works fine for only first click. On second click, it doesnot work.

Can you kindly explain what you mean please.

Thanks a lot

Sorry, I am not so familiar with Axwebbrowser control.
.NET has a new WebBrowser control which has a Navigating event. In the event, you can set a flag to cancel a request.
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.webbrowser.aspx

From my experience, the new control could do almost everything as the old ActiveX control except the NewWindow2 event.

Hi, SHAHEEN_AKHTAR

Just let you know the new WebBrowser control is a wrap of the AxWebBrowser control. You can get a instance of the ActiveX control by:

SHDocVw.WebBrowser activeXBrowser = (SHDocVw.WebBrowser)webBrowser1.ActiveXInstance;

You can use all events and properties from both.
