reset and delete personal settings
disable windows defender

Anything in your error logs?
Paul S

when you downgraded to IE8 could you download files? Does firefox or chrome work for downloading files? what do you event logs show?

Try disabling you firewall.

Write the exact error message here.


Get the IE to "Compatiblity view" and try again.

Test purpose

In IE9 or 10

1. FTP:-Try downloading this file from ftp link ftp://ftp.coreftp.com/coreftplite.exe
     If you are able to download this file then ftp part works.

2. Http: Try downloading this file from http link
http://www.coreftp.com/download/coreftplite.exe


Post results and if possible screenshot or video.

neither download method works. It says corelite.exe couldn't be downloaded

Internet options- connection - lan settings- uncheck all options...restart IE and check.

start- all programs-accessories-system tools- IE with no addon ...check whether you can browse websites.

Well, a system repair install (not full install) is the method to try, at this time.  :-(
ded9

Do you have any other security software.

Turn off windows firewall and check.

The system repair or in place upgrade worked.

System Repair and In Place Upgrade are not the same thing.
Which was it?

System Repair (suggested by aadih but no info given)
http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/create-a-system-repair-disc

which leads to System Recovery Options
http://windows.microsoft.com/is-is/windows/what-are-system-recovery-options#what-are-system-recovery-options=windows-7

In place upgrade (also known as Repair Install) which I suggested.  See http:#a39468234  .
