I am not able to download any files from internet explorer if i login as restricted user or power user in the Win XP pc. I am getting the below error message.
"Internet explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later"
If I login as local administrator i am able to download the file.
I am able to download the file using Firefox without any problem even if i am logged in as restricted user or power user.
I've attached the screen shot.
Any thoughts?

What's the permissions on your cache folder
%userprofile%\Local Settings\Temporary Internet Files
and temp folder: %userprofile%\Local Settings\Temp
?
