We've begun having an issue on some of our Windows 7 machines that are running IE9.  These machines are unable to open .pdf and .exe files from internet links.  I have attached a picture of the window that pops up.

None of these options work, but there is no error generated, the window just goes away.  If we downgrade the machine back to IE8, everything works fine.  Our IE security settings are controlled through Group Policy, but the issue affects two of our domain administrators as well who do not have the policy applied to them.
