GPO Unable to Download files from the Internet/Intranet

Hi all,

I'm unable to download any files from the Internet/Intranet. (All browser Chrome, Firefox, IE 11)
I have looked at the GPO and the "Allow File download" has been set to not configured. I also set it to Enable and still a no go.
I also looked at the "Restrict file download". It's set to not configured. I also set this to Disable and still a no go.
I tried numerous combinations of those two Policy and still nothing.

When I run the gpresult /r. It's only applying the Default GPO along with the IE GPO.
When I removed the default GPO, I'm able to download. Could I be missing a policy?

Attach is the two policy I can think of that would block downloads.

OS is Windows 8.1
The devices are Surface Pro 3
Even the local Admins can't download files.
have you installed antivirus. I've seen it where incompatible av can cause issues like this. what error do you get when trying to download

I'm getting an Security Alert Pop Up that says

"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded."

I have reset IE, Firefox, and Chrome settings to default and still getting that issue.
I made sure the that all the zones were set to Enabled for the Allow File Download in the GPO.
are others on the sane domain having the same issues?

Well that GPO is just for Windows 8.1
All the desktop stations are all on Windows 7

We don't have any laptops on 8.1 yet just the Surface Pro 3.
When I do remove the Default 8.1 GPO and just leave it with just no GPO or IE 11 GPO it works fine.
So I know that its the default 8.1 GPO. I tried looking at all the policy but most of them are on default which is "not configured"
