"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded" - WHY??
About a month ago my WinXP laptop got spyware-infested. After numerous attempts to remove it, I ended up reformatting the poor little beast.
Generally, it runs well. HOWEVER, certain web sites call up the error "Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded" with no option to go ahead and download. Today's culprit is real.com, but others have had the same trouble. Some sites, far more dubious in my opinion, ARE able to download files.
I have tried adding these sites to my trusted domain, but this has no effect. I have tried temporarily lowering my security level for the Internet domain and trusted domain to Low, but it doesn't stick - it's right back at medium when I go back in.
I run SpywareBlaster and Ad-aware weekly and am pretty confident the computer is still spyware-free.
Why is the security out to get me??
