Server 2008 R2 File downloads hang at different stages

A little backround on my issue I have been having, whenever we attempt to download a file from a software vendor roughly 140mb in size the backup hangs at around 11% in IE9(x86) and at various stages with Firefox.  This problem exists on any of our servers that are 2008R2, I am attempting to download these files while logged in as a domain admin, the windows firewall has been disabled, IE isn't running in protected mode etc.  I haven't seen any events on either server that would point to any cause for this issue.  Another server running Server 2003 with the same domain admin accounts is able to download the same file without an issue.  I am stumped does anyone have any ideas?  Thanks in advance.

There has been a few known issues with IE9 running in the 2008 R2 environment and I believe an update will eventually come out for it.  Try removing IE9 and use IE8 to see if the issue clears up.  I know I had an issue with IE9 because it would not let me close EMC on my 2008 R2 server.

But wouldn't the use of another browser resolve this issue?  I experienced the same issue with Firefox.

I have now tried the same file on another Server 2008 R2 server but it has IE8 and the file still hangs up, is there another area I should be looking?

Another though worth mentioning is these three servers in which I am having this download issue on all reside on an ESXi 4.1.0 host server and are using VSphere Client version 4.1.0 as well.

The uninstall of vmware tools did not resolve this issue, nor were there any events around the time of the download attempt.  I have also been able to duplicate the same issue on another Server 2008 R2 instance on ESXi 4.1 on a different environment with the same issue.
