Install IE9.  It's far less annoying than IE8, and from my previous experiences, you cannot disable the download prompt for pages which do not have a direct download facility.

For example, you'll see this if the page says something like "Your download will start in x seconds.  It it does not start, click Here" - every one of these pages will get blocked with IE8.

IE9 - no problem :)

You should be able to add the website in question to Trusted Sites and that would eliminate the problem. I also agree that IE 9 is better.
