Default Computer won't download anything

K, well recently all I've downloaded is Ventrilo. Today I went to download something else and when the download box came up I hit save, and then the box closed. I tried to download other things to see if it was just the file and it wasn't, I can download ANYTHING.

Is there anything I can do?

Open your web browser than go to: Tools, Internet Options, Security, select Internet, then Custom Level, Downloads and make sure File Downloads is enabled.

It is enabled. :\

The only other thing I saw was that automatic prompting was disabled, should that be enabled?

I don't think that matters, you can always try and see if it does anything.

I think it fixed itself, I'll post if something happens again. Thanks for your help!
