can't run exe or msi files on 2003 server

Today can't run .exe or .msi files on new server (Server 2003 x64 SP2).

Further mystery is that also can't download .exe file from MS support.  Download folder goes immediately to Canceled when I click Save and a 0 byte file is created.

Could do all this yesterday.

Changes since it all worked are:

__seized FSMO roles, which had belonged to a server that had crashed

__many (80+) Windows Auto updates were applied, including SP2)

__made the user account I'm using a schema admin in addition to already being a domain admin
(Not being such had seemed to be a problem with a SQL install the day before)

Any suggestions of what got broke and how to fix very much appreciated.

Try heading to Add/Remove Programs, Windows Components and uncheck Internet Explorer Enhanced Security and reboot.

Wow.  That seems to have been it.  Many thanks.  I never would have guessed that relationship.
