your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded

SBS2008 when trying to download a file from Microsoft we get tehis message:
"your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"
The option 'Enabled Protected mode' is greyed out.  How can we relax security on this server to allow downloads of this nature?
