I am having trouble downloading absolutely any files through my Internet Explorer browser after very foolishly uninstalling my Firefox (favourite browser with all my favourite web pages sotred) browser and now I have a major problem, because I can only use this browser to download Firefox again and it simply won't download anything!

This is the error message I get, you probably recognize it?

"Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded"

Now before you all tell me to alter the settings in Internet options, I have altered everything in there to lowest security and made sure the box which refers to allowing downloads to work is checked and still I get nothing downloading. So quite annoying!

I am wondering is there a way of changing registry keys o fix this problem or am I stuck here in Internet Explorer for eternity?

Thanks in advance,

Matt
