Internet Explorer 9 won't download files, Windows 7

I have a machine that IE9 will not download any file from the internet.  I have reset IE9, checked all security settings, downgraded to IE8, nothing seems to work.
When I click to download something, I will get a little "refresh" type wheel in that tab I am working in and nothing else happens....no errors...nada.
Loading IE without addins-no dice

Any ideas?

Time to run MalwareBytes AntiMalware just to be sure the cause is not virii.

Before that try a system restore to a time before the problem started; then run MBAM also.

Also have you check your security settings for the same ?

Same issue here. Long time tech with lots of experience.

Brand new custom built workstation... Win7 64bit. Delivered with IE 10.

User has custom banking needs which require rollback to IE 9.... no biggie, 'uninstalled' the update to 10... IE 9 appears to be working.

Next day.. customer calls back with this same issue. Nothing will download. Easy test... piriform.com, download ccleaner... nothing happens. "Restart the download" same result... nothing. Although I see now the tab DOES spin as if busy, for a half-second. Also attempted Adobe Reader auto install... same results.

So far I have downgraded to IE 8, which works, but is ALSO incompatible according to the bank. Upgraded to IE9, reset all settings, restored all defaults, no luck anywhere.

And yes... up-to-date Malwarebytes scans clean.

I don't want to wipe and start over... but it's looking that way.

Any help at all would be appreciated.
