    can't bring up download page (Internet Explorer 6.0)

    When I click onto a link to a download page, it brings up a grayed out page with an icon in the top left hand page and won't let me download. does anyone else have this problem or how to get around this?
    Please help!

    Does this affect all sites or one or two in particular that we (at least some IE6 users) could take a look at?

    Check your security setting. I am not that familiar with IE, but that sounds like something that MS would do if you set your security to the max.

    I have checked the security levels and that does't seem to have anything to do with it, also I have realized that I can download a Zip file but won't allow me to download any .exe files. I'm puzzled.

    That sure sounds like MS's security "solution." That is the same as what they did to Outlook (no attached executable files are downloaded).

    Could we get a little more information? There is certainly not much to work with...

    What is your OS? What version of IE are we talking about? Can you post an image of how the Download screen looks?

    This is not typical of IE security setting changes. Generally they either do something or they do nothing -- they don't lead to non-functional screens.

    But something on your system is limiting what specific file extension you can donwload. Are you using any type of download software or is your ISP limiting these somehow??

    My OS is Windows 98, my browser is IE 6.0. I have attacked a file that looks like the download screen it brings up when I try to download an EXE. file. I am connected with Shaw Cable.

    My version of Word must be too old to display that. This is all I see. Can you post it as a .jpg file instead?

    OK, this just may be your problem:

    Error Locating Object Handler
    When you try to download a program (.exe) or zip (.zip) file, Internet Explorer may display a blank Web page that contains an ActiveX icon in the upper-right corner.

    If all you saw was a blank gray page with an icon in the top left hand corner then your version of word is fine. That is all you are supposted to see. that is what the web page looks like when I try to download a exe file.
