This question is linked to my post Downloading file and internet security issue however this is more abstract.
Consider the following:
Website "www.example.com" added to trust zone.
- Navigate to a website using internet explorer, download a file (No problem)
- run application as administrator, the application navigates to the web site, download a file ( Windows Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading)
What is the different between 1 and 2? For me, Internet Explorer runs under admin rights and the application as well. Then why does Internet Explorer block the file from downloading via the application?
