I recently installed Windows 7. I can browse to any webpage using IE8, but if I click on any links to download files, I receive the following error:
Unable to download [filename] from [website].
Unable to open this Internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later.
I can download files perfectly fine using firefox, it's just IE that is having issues.
There are no messages in the windows event log. I have no add-ins installed and have made no security changes as this is a fresh install.
