I can't download anything off the internet. I am running windows 7, and internet explorer 11. When I click on download, and it shows to run or save. I have tried to use both of them. But all it does, when I click on the box. Is show a smaller box inside the one I click on.

  1. Click, Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Restore Advanced setting, last resort hit the Reset button further down,
  2. After a month experience - the best solution is to downgrade to Internet explorer 9. Both - 10 and 11 cannot download at all...
  3. I have the same problem with Firefox 33 & up. Some files will download if I repeatedly click on the file in the download download file drop-down. Not always, though. The crazy thing is both my laptop and desktop are set up identically but the desktop downloads and the laptop doesn't.

  5. I got the problem solved but how is beyond me. I might have something to do with reformatting my hard drive and starting fresh.
  6. I’m using windows 10 pro, IE 11, that’s what I did and fix the problem. You have only to figure out where are the “Temporary internet Folder”. If I’m not wrong at Windows 7 click at Microsoft logo, then click “computer”, click at local C: them follow bellow,
    C:\Users\?Smith?\Appdata\local\Microsoft\windows\temporary Internet files.
    After you know were the folder is, go to “Internet option” at “general”, click on “settings”. Bellow find were is Current Location: If there is C:\User\............ Check if it’s the same location you had find out on top or if there is nothing. If different or blank, go to MOVE FOLDER bellow and click and follow until you have the new location and click ok. Close the windows and try if works. But if it’s the same location, sorry I can’t help.
  7. 4maresfamily, thanks so much for your solution! It worked like a charm.
