Ie And Bing - Can't Download


I am unable to download most files when i try to access by ie (vista home premium, ie7). Downloading works fine in aol, google chrome and opera. The latest 2 are ad-aware update via cnet and my audible books from audible.com, although it has happened every time i try to download since bing infested my computer. It doesn't matter whether i press a "download" button or am auto directed, it goes to bing and thinks it's a search (see below messages). I contacted the bing help and they said this is an ie problem.

Bing Toolbar Download Has Stopped Search

Bing toolbar download has stopped search from opening a new page when queried (as i want). I've tried every setting i can find regarding how to open a new window with a new link or a new search and they all seem to be set correctly - but this won't work with any of the search engines on my tool-bars (and it did before the download). They always open in the same window which is a major pain in the rear end.

I tried to system restore before i installed the new toolbar but then i had problems with the toolbar that used to be there (essentially an older version of the same toolbar) that said i needed to reinstall it. Can anyone please help me get a separate window to open when i execute an ie search?  I'm comfortable with windows and if i need to make changes to the registry that's perfectly fine.

Blocked By Bing From Going To Amazon.com

I am using windows 7 ultimate 64-bit os factory installed on my hp high performance pavilion elite. This is a 64-bit system. I am experiencing frequent instances of bing coming up and blocking my attempts to go to web pages i select. One instance is trying to go to amazon.com: bing page comes up and blocks the attempt. Javascript is mentioned but not explained. I go to the sun web page to download java and am blocked trying to download 64-bit java. I am possibly an intermediate user and certainly not an expert and i am confused and frustrated.

Another problem with bing coming up to block is my attempt to download pictures as screen-savers from webshots. Each time i try to download a picture i am shunted off to bing! I don't understand. How can i get rid of bing, so i can use the internet as before?

Bing Cashback Program Troubles

I purchased a laptop on overstock.com on july 17th using the bing cashback program and paypal. Bing claimed i was eligible for 30% off my purchase. I have received no cashback. I have tried contacting bing support and am always directed to a dead page. I am hoping someone can provide me with some help as to someone whom i can ask several questions about. My decision to purchase the laptop was based on the sale price and i honestly cannot afford the laptop at full price. I sincerely look forward to someone offering some advice.

I recently updated to ie8 and added bing/msn toolbar, first of all i have two ie8 regular ie8 and 1e8 (64 bit) first down load i used regular, ie8. It installed every ok, then i open ie8(64) no toolbar. So down loaded from this ie8(64) bit browser, it tells me it is already installed, so i restart pc but no toolbar. Then i down load toolbar again, this time it does  allows me re down load again, though upon restarting pc, no toolbar in ie8 (64) bit aggain in regular ie i have bing toolbar. I also upgraded vista to include sp 2 earlier today and upgraded ie from ie7 to ie8.

Should i uninstall and try again? And must i down load for each ie or should install for both ie? I used this page to download toolbar http://www.microsoft.com/toolbar/install-free-toolbar.aspx also, whats the difference between both ie's or should i delete one of them?

Bing Bar Install Issue

I cannot install the bing bar on my windows 7 pc. The install completes halfway and then closes with no error or finish installed message. I open ie8 and it's not there. It is listed in add/remove programs though. So i have tried uninstalling and reinstalling and a clean boot install. Scan for spyware/virus, system is cleaned. Also, deteled windows temp folder, cleared cache, cookies, disable add-ons. I can install the windows live toolbar successfully. Other programs install fine as well.

Any ideas?

How To Use Bing Dynamic Rss Theme?

Windows 7 theme problem - bing dynamic (rss theme)i have used many of the new windows 7 themes without problems, but i can't get the rss theme called bing dynamic to work. When i download it and open it, all that's in the theme is the empty theme (no images), so it leaves my desktop black. I thought it might start working after waiting a minute for it to download an image, but it's been over 30 minutes and still no image. It doesn't have the rss symbol on the theme in my list like it does on my friend's computer (where it does work), but for the picture album, it has the right location: a web address for a theme server. How do i get it to work?

Bing Bar Has Encountered An Error

Error code 400 then error code 1000 then just the "bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse". For at least the past three weeks i have been getting a message every time i open ie8 in windows 7 x64-bit.initially it said that the bing bar had encountered an error and listed error code 400. Then later that changed to error code 100, and now it just says that "the bing bar has encountered an error. Please close all browse" with only the help circle to the right.

It no longer shows the temperature either. I have written many times and have yet to get an answer or any suggestion as to how to correct the situation. The bing search page still opens normally and performs searches as it should. I'm getting very tired of this and want it to be corrected. I have tried closing the browser many times as well as every night.

Cannot Download Anything

I have windows vista office ultimate and am using ie8 as my browser. I can't download anything. Anytime i try to open/run/save a file it just disappears. When downloading it will go 99% and then just go away. I don't know when the problem started exactly. I take online classes that require me to get files through internet explorer to do my coursework. I've tried everything i knew how to do (short of just completely reinstalling my operating system). I'm not the greatest with computers so please try to use "layman" terms.

Re Download Drivers

When i download a driver and try to expand/install it and it says down load error - down load again, which i download again but because the driver was downloaded before it does not actually download again, but shows in a split second that the driver has downloaded as (1). When i click the new downloaded driver it shows the same download error message. This is because the download begins from where the download stopped and not from the starting again, showing the same file from the hard disk.
Please tell me how to delete the cache file and re-download a fresh driver.

Download Error

I've downloaded (bought) windows 7 home premium yesterday, and the download (with microsoft download manager) went fine, but when i tried to open the file called windows 7 home premium (it's a 3-part download (setup1, setup2 and "windows 7. ")) A loadingbar comes up on the screen, but it only complete a litle bit (think it needs to unpack, so the thing thats supposed to happen is that you click on the windows 7. File, and then it'll unpack automatically, and spread files all over the folder, witch i btw placed on the c-drive) and then it says, that there's an error with the file, and that it may be damaged.

And if i try to open on of the setup-files, it tells me to choose a program to open it with, and i've tried word, adobe, internet and thinks like that, but nothing works. So that don't work either. ?

I've tried to download the files 3 times now, and i've also tried to download the 64-bit windows 7 - but same problem.

It's a litle - well, very complicated, but please help me, if you know what to do, or have a idea (any ideas will work!)  - I've payed 100£ for something, so it would be nice, if it would work.

Cannot Download As Administrator

We received two brand new hp6241f pcs running windows 7 from future shop here in canada. I got home tonight from work and found my dad still sitting in front of the first, trying to get it set up. At that point he was trying to activate the 60-day ms office trial but every time he clicked the link to get a key he'd get a message saying he wasn't connected to the internet. I confirmed that he was; we can totally surf.

I found another way of getting the key but kept getting redirected to a bing page that said "we are unable to find [url]. "

I tried a few times, figured it was a bad link and decided to move on. I went to download windows live mail.

Same stupid thing. The download page would load, the download would be about to begin and the redirect would happen again.

I've tried downloading firefox and ccleaner - same problem.

I've browsed forum after forum and answer after answer. There's only one user and she's identified as administrator.

I played with security settings up the yin/yang. I do hi-speed internet technical support for a living so i can easily disable common stuff. I followed some instructions to make changes of the user controls but full control is already enabled.

I'm at my wits end and hating win7. There are too damn many security options, if you ask me. Too many to find, apparently, because nothing i've done is working.

Opk Download

For the past several days, i have been trying to download the win 7 opk (oem pre-installation kit) with no luck. Have downloaded all the relevant docs & videos then started the opk download. It did request that i use the bits ie plug-in, which was done, but i find that it doesn't seem to work with win 7. The 1st download ended after only 17% stating that it was not downloaded due to the connection to the server being reset.

Tried again late last night hoping that it would be completed by the time i get back to it today, but found it failed again after 60% with the same failure. Any idea as to how i can get a complete download of the opk?

No Toolbars / Cannot Download Anything

I have windows xp professional with service pack 2, and internet explorer 7. Automatic updates were turned on & i selected to upgrade to internet explorer 8. After the upgrade, everything on the internet was huge & blurry, so i did a system restore to a point before i had installed ie8. Now i have no toolbars on ie7.

No windows explorer toolbars & no internet explorer toolbars, i can't download anything, i can't print from the internet, i can not cut and paste from the internet to any other application. I disabled all firewalls. I ran spyware search & destroy scans. I deleted the registry values for itbarlayout. I right clicked & left clicked on every inch of my screen to see if i could get an option to view toolbar.

Error - You Need To Download Flash

Windows 7 on a 64 bit system thus all ie games just error message " you need to download flash. Just click here. " Abode does not have a flash for 64 bit sys _susann_love my new 4g win 7 hp laptop. The games impacted, on my system and it seems to be related to the 64-bit sys i bought, are on gsn.com & comcast.net games:

1. I ran the troubleshooting option, as these games worked on my xp system, with both service packs 2 and 3, which were downloaded immediately.
2. Java uploaded a patch immediately as well.

All seemed well with the world until this morning when i launched a trivia game on comcast and got that same error message. The troubleshooter did not recognize the program, tried to fo its thing and ran a check and said try the online support group. Basically i think comcast games may have some funky code - that it my interpretation, not microsoft.

Fyi - pogo.com games were always 100% ok.

Download Win 7 Isos

Bought the ultimate disk from newegg as a preorder and wrote it off as a business expense. Almost 4 months down the line, i found the disk was scratched when i cleaned out my disk storage drawer. Was going to upgrade my hard drives today, but don't want to risk an operational system if the disk can't be read during installation. Is there a way to download the disk w/o relying on torrents or pirate sites. I already looked at microsoft.com, but it looks like i'll have to purchase a full disk from them and newegg doesn't do windows downloads from what i've seen either.

Ie8 Will Not Download From Adobe

I have always been able to use flash, etc from adobe (marcomedia). But now, even clicking on to some of the links provided in these forums to downland, i keep getting error: ie cannot download (ex: adberdr930_en_us.exe) and other sites. Says: ie not able to open internet site. This happens on all adobe product downloads. This happened and have been fighting this for a month. Since going to web site and it said i needed to upgrade. Note: i installed firefox and then all flash, etc. Working fine. But would prefer to use ie 8 on my windows xp.

I have worked for two weeks with adobe forum experts with no success. And yes, followed all the directions to try and resolve. Please don't tell me to un-install and then install; have done that dozens of times. I have 32 bit system. I am the administrator. All security settings were not changed before or after and are correct. I have tried the compatibility view step.

Unable To Download Any Files

So last night i left my computer on and when i woke up it seemed as if it had restarted since it was back at the login screen. After signing in i found that i was/am unable to download anything from the internet. I have tried both firefox and ie8. I have run an updated anti-virus and spyware scan. Anything i download is apparently nonexistent. The odd thing is that i am to surf the web just fine. Any help would be huge.

P. S. I trolled the forums and have tried resetting ie8 back to defaults, deleting temp files etc.

Extremely Slow Download

I have been trying to download and install the windows 7 upgrade since dec. 30 afternoon. It is installing at speed of only 1. 1k/sec  this is not normal for me. I think over the weekend something corrupted some of my programs, i had to re-install some of them.could whatever it was cause the download speed to do this?  Should i wait for the dvd to arrive which i ordered along with the upgrade to arrive and then just install from it?  And should i do a clean install to find and correct this corruption? I scanned, cleaned, error-checked, etc. And nothing shows up. I have hughesnet satellite connection of 100 mbps. Any and all advice much appreciated!

Frozen Download Notices

I have a sony vaio with vista. In the last few months i have been constantly receiving download notices but nothing seems to happen. It will say downloading 1 of 3, don't turn off or unplug the computer. 5 hours later i come back and it still says the same thing so i turn it off because i can't access my laptop. So now i've started getting notices from my trend micro antivirus saying that all of these turning off of my computer is going to make my antivirus program not work anymore. What's with all the frozen downloads?

Additional Download Request

Very recently i purchased windows 7 premium online and couldn't get it to install. I then purchased windows 7 ultimate and a microsoft person told me how to burn the dvd in iso format. Here's the question. Now, when i try to install windows 7 premium on my other computer, legally because i bought it too, the website tells me i need to request additional downloads. I can't find a place to do that. Please remember that i never got to install the w7 premium because i didn't know about the iso format.

Ie Download Manager Feature

This might be more of a suggestion for a future feature in microsoft internet explorer, but is there any sort of download manager available in the ie8 browser? Something along the lines of getright, such that it resumes downloads if they time out or have to be paused?

I think it is odd that we have exponential increases in hard drive space and online data storage, but ie still stalls when downloading or uploading files. I am taking an online class through my university but i am unable to download files very easily because ie8 keeps stalling and ending the download early, sometimes also being unable to resume it even when i try to re-download the file immediately. I was hoping getright would solve my problem but my school uses a forwarding procedure to download the videos (e.g. , Clicking the link downloads "download. Mov", which then changes to the actual file link "class. Mp4"). I am unable to find the full link for class. Mp4 and so am kinda in limbo for now.

Does ie8 have any sort of built-in download manager or have one available as an add-on?

Download Through Digital River

I legally purchased a copy of windows 7 through an online store with the student discount price. The purchase comes with a download option of an .exe install or a . Iso to burn and install. I do not have a dvd burner and had to go with the .exe install. Ever since i purchased it i have not been able to complete the download, it stops at 70-80% and then does not complete. I took my pc over to a friends house and somehow his internet was able to finish the download. The problem is that the files downloaded were corrupt and one of them was even missing.

I've been pretty patient with this terrible service through digital river and do not want to go through another 2 months of trying to download something i've already paid for. Is there a way microsoft could send me an installation disk of the product that i can use my legally obtained product key with?
