I have an old desktop PC which cannot download email attachments using IE8 but can using Firefox.
Version of IE (Internet Explorer)- IE8
Operating System - XP SP3
All your security programs (including firewall, anti-virus, anti-spayware, any extra security tools installed/used.) - AVGv9
What you have tried - disabling all add-ins and running as administrator
What the problem is - everything works fine until I click to download an email attachment. I get the little grey box which usually tells you how long the download will take but nothing happens. No info in the box, it doesn't appear to get beyond 0% and only the files move between the location at the top of the box. There are no error messages though.When I switch to Firefox it works.
I'd be very grateful if anyone knows what might cause or fix this.
