For some reason, when I download zip files with IE8, I get Folder is invalid or corrupted. But while downloading with Firefox or Chrome, I can open the file. Is there a fix for this?

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

Actually found out the issue, the files that threw the error were gzip files and found out needing a program like 7zip or winzip to open file.
