Downloading Files Blocked


I am trying to download a completed form from a government website and am getting the error message "to help protect your security, ie blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options. " When i click to download file, i get the message "to display the webpage again, ie needs to resend the information you've previously submitted. " I'll click retry and am taken back to the beginning and start the whole circle over.

I have added the website to my trusted sites, have tried taking the privacy settings down to accept all cookies and have tried turning off popup blocker. Nothing seems to work to allow this to finish. I am running ie 8 on windows xp pro. The file is small in size and i've not had trouble until today.

Docx Files Downloading As Zip Files

I am having an issue with docx files turning into zip files when i try and download them in ie8. I have done alot of research on this problem and have looked into the 2 main solutions to this problem: 1) set security settings to "open file based on file content, not file extension" to disable  2) check the mime type table on the web server and make sure the office 2007 extensions are added.

The first step i tried and the file was still trying to open as a zip file. The second one i was only able to ask the vendor because the web server does not belong to me, but the vendor said they were able to get the same exact docx file to download as a docx file and everyone on their end was able to. I am able to save the zip file and rename the file extension to docx and open it, but sadly this will not be an acceptable answer.

I've tried adding registry settings to allow it to open with docx files as well with no success.
I am curious if anyone has any other suggestions for me?

Access Blocked To Files

I recently set up my new laptop with windows 7 ultimate and transferred files from my old xp laptop. I'm finding several folders that tell me "access denied". I've tried to upgrade the access through file properties>security but often the permission upgrade boxes are greyed out so i can't even improve the security. It seems that a lot of the "denied" files are under my user name.

The workaround this is to slap a blocked file from my old laptop onto a usb key and then saved it a public user on my computer but what a hassle and how inefficient.

Any ideas on how to resolve my security issues?

Downloading Xp Mode

I am trying to download windows xp mode for windows 7 professional for a brand new laptop of my boss from my windows vista business machine. But it is unable to do so, as microsoft requires authentication. I am an it guy and i have registered his windows 7 on my email id. If microsoft needs, i can provide it. I cannot download windows xp mode in my office as it is 500 mb is size. Moreover, my boss is not having enough time to spare his laptop for downloading this software and thereby reducing the speed of internet at his own end for other activities like downloading emails on ms outlook, using video chats etc. Can anyone suggest what can be done?

Downloading Of Software Disappears

For the past few months whenever i go to download software from the internet or download a pdf file, they never show up. I get the download status window and it tells me that it is complete, but i always either download to my desktop or my documents and nothing ever shows up. I even do a search for the file and windows vista tells me it does not exist. This is getting very irritating and hoping that coming to this forum helps. I am not sure if it is a some setting that has changed or what. Looking forward to any help.

Problems Downloading Programs With Win 7

I previously had vista installed on my dell but i had some sort of virus, so i went to a tech store (i'm living in south america so options are limited obviously) and they re-installed windows 7 on my computer. But i can't download a number of things - firefox, skype, adobe flash player, and programs necessary for my work. It doesn't give me the option to "use as administrator". Anyways, any help would be appreciated.

For example, when i go to the skype homepage, it will start downloading, then state that "skype has stopped working". I am using the 64 bit version of windows, and i can't access the 32 bit version, and i've tried everything that has been suggested in the forums.

Downloading And Viewing A Pdf File

When i log into my utility provider web site to view my bill, internet explorer 8 opens a window and tries to down load the pdf file but just sits doing nothing. I have adobe reader 9 installed and if i try a different browser the pdf file is displayed correctly even with my anti virus active and i can print and save the file so the problem is obviously ie8. I have checked the settings etc but cannot see any thing obvious that is stopping the file from opening. Have tried shutting down my anti virus to see if this is affecting it but it has no effect.

Downloading Photos From Memory Cards

Windows xp was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When i insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, i don't so i just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when i click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the c drive and there is where i can copy to the cd, horrible. Leave it like windows xp nice and simple. Tell me what i am doing wrong

Crash / Bsod After Downloading Security Update

After receiving a mcafee update in late july my computer asked to restart. During starting up my computer got to the password page and then crashed to bsod. I restarted it in safe mode and then did a recovery as suggested which seemed to solve the problem. However my mcafee security center continually dropped protection so i contacted mcafee and they advised me to uninstall the old mcafee and download the new version. After download my computer crashed as before and on contacting mcafee was told there was an issue that their engineers are working on, but gave me no time frame for a resolution.

I have since attempted to download kaspersky security software, but after using the scan and finding nothing the security centre requested a restart after a update.guess what happened. Crash to bsod again!. My computer works fine after the removal of the software once i, ve employed recovery, but this obviously leaves me with only windows defender and no anti-virus software. Is this a mcafee issue or has their software caused some damage to my windows software or computer hardware? Please help i'm feeling a little defenseless.

Computer Freezes While Downloading Videos From Youtube

A few days ago, while having a video conference with my friend from spain(i'm in ireland), my pc froze completely and nothing worked but the hard reboot. Now it's happening almost every time i try to download any . Flv video. Sometimes i can see . Flv videos for 1 hour, some times for 5 minutes before i have to reboot the machine again.

I was thinking it was firefox browser  but by my surprise it happened with explorer too. I was googling the subject and some forums suggest update drivers. And they are updated and still the same. Another sites blame on windows 7, but i bought my laptop in december2009 and never had this issue before. It's happening since 21st of march 2010. Why is faulty now? I've been on the same web pages always, no hacker's or weird sites. I'd really appreciate if some one can help me out with this issue before is getting worse.

My features are:
Windows 7 home premium
Hewlett packard hp g61 notebook pc
Pentium dual core cpu t4300 @ 2. 10 ghz
4. 00 gb ram
64-bit operating system

0x00000007f Bsod Downloading Games Using Internet

I just updated and rebuilt my pc and have reinstalled win 7 64 bit and am constantly getting a bsod while using the pc. Specifically while downloading/installing/playing games. I have also had the error occur just while surfing the internet. From the program blue screen viewer it seems to be caused by ntoskrnl.exe+7f1c0 and/or ntoskrnl.exe+7e769.

I can not find any solution to fix this issue, i have updated drivers, i have ran the microsoft memory checker, i have changed out my memory, tried 2 other video cards, tried two different wireless network cards, now on wired connection, i even changed motherboards, got the errors on both ssd and hdd. The only things i haven't changed out is the ps and cpu, since i am using the pc to write this i am ruling out the cpu as the issue.

I have used memtest86 and prime95 to test the memory and cpu, nothing is coming back with errors or issues. I did run driver verifier and got two .dmp files for some specific files but not sure what to do with those now. It seems to be software/driver issue but i can not figure it out.

Blocked Drivers

I got a new hp 610 laptop with windows 7 home basic operating system. On installing the "total protection" it gave me an error saying that a driver. Had been blocked by the operating system and disabled. It is not giving me an indication as to which driver it is.

It must be something to do with the firewall because i cannot get it to switch on. I have total protection running on my pc and previously on my other laptop but they were running on xp pro.
Have you had something like this before?

Downloading Issues / Save Or Open The File Message

Okay, i first noticed this issue when i was playing team fortress. Whenever you enter a server you'll be presented with a server message, which is a html page with-in the program (from my understanding). But when my computer is about to load the server message it minimizes and i get a message saying if i want to save or open the file, if i click open it will open in my browser and the in game window will be blank. Its happened to a few other programs as well, for instance when installing a program the eula will come up as a html doc within the installed and i have to scroll to accept, however it again asks me to open or save, if i open it will open in a browser.

The last place i noticed it was in outlook, whenever i get new mail, instead of doing the normal thing outlook does with mail it asks me if i want to save the file it's receiving. At first i thought my temp folder was full, cleaned it and i still get the issue. Its really limiting what i can do on my computer, could anyone help?

Product Key Blocked

I have just installed(once again), my windows 7 ultimate on my recent formatted computer, because i got some problems so i had to do it. The problem is that i changed my video card because the other one stopped working. Now i put the cd key and it says that microsoft have blocked the cd key for use, and i will have to put another in 3 days. I think this is happening because i binded my cd key with my hardware when i had the another video card, so what can i do now? Where can i change it? The only hardware piece that changed was the video card, the other stuff is all the same.

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?

Activation Key Is Blocked

I bought 64-bit win7 in october thru the win741.com school program via download. I installed it at the time in a dual-boot configuration since it was going to take me a while to move programs & data to it (was going from 32-bit xp, had too much stuff that wouldn't run). I installed it & activated it no problem.

Eventually, i got fully moved to it & deleted the xp. About 10 days ago, i got what appears to be major ntfs corruption (machine wouldn't boot, if i put one of the drives - hardware 3ware raid1 - in another machine it didn't recognize a valid file system, etc. ). So i have rebuilt it, but it wouldn't take my key as valid during the install. I thought it was odd, but i didn't realize what was going on at the time. It's because it's an upgrade key and i no longer have xp on this system.
So now i have perused various websites and found 'workarounds' for getting it activated doing a clean install with my upgrade key.

But none have worked. And in fact, the last one returned the message that my activation key has been blocked! It's only been used/activated one time, on this same hardware, so i imagine it's the repeated attempts at activating it. I cannot find a number within the os to call ms about this. I can provide order details, key, etc.

Who do i contact, how do i get this resolved? If i have to install xp again and do a clean install while it's on there, i guess that's what i have to do. It's ridiculous, though. But it appears my key is no longer going to work. I am worried that i have been permanently locked out of what i paid for.

Product Key Has Been Blocked

Yesterday i installed windows 7 (32 bit) in a virtualbox virtual machine; but the machine got corrupt; so i reinstall windows 7 again, today. I could not enter my product key, so i did the "slmgr. Vbs /ipk product key" then "slmgr /ato" (without quotes) and a few moments later a message came up saying that "the activation server determined that the specified product key has been blocked. "This is a legal copy of windows 7 bought at christmas 2009. (Which *** me off because i did not pirate it. )This is why i love apple; no product keys to worry about. (But i need windows 7 for some win-only programs. )I can see a lawsuit arising because of this issue effecting even legal copies.

Activation Product Code Has Been Blocked

I purchased a retail copy of windows 7 ultimate and installed and activated the 64 bit version successfully. After a couple of weeks, i received a message to say that build 7600 copy of windows is not genuine. However i'm still receiving automatic updates. The packaging appears to be the same as shown on the microsoft website as being genuine and also the disc has the holograms including the "microsoft" and "genuine". I have tried to validate the software and get the message that the product code has been blocked.

I have been on the windows script host and get the following:

Partial product key: dqtc2
Activation id: a0dce89c-3304-4157-b61c-c8ad785d1fad

Genuine Win 7 Key Blocked

Ok this is somewhat a long story but here it goes. I was installing a system driver for my motherboard that was released today. During the installing my computer froze and i had to reboot. Upon my reboot all of my usb ports stopped working as soon as, i hit the log in screen. I had no way to log in or control my computer as soon as i hit the log in screen. The system did not recognize that anything was wrong so i never was prompted to repair my os. I lost my windows 7 cd a while back though i had a backup on my hard drive i had no way of reaching it.

So i got a back up cd off my roomates computer. I tried to use it to repair my computer no detection of my hard drive or windows install as i later learned it was a home x32 version. So i got a x64bit backup from his computer which was also windows 7 ultimatex64. I installed windows on a different drive than my own so i could recover my backup off my computer. So after installing his backup and i recovered and burnt my back up cd, then i rebooted.

The setup screen prompted me i installed my raid drivers and tried to repair the drive, it would not even detect that i had a windows install on my raid nor my restore points however it said i had errors with my startup and i let it attempt to repair. Once again i got to my original windows 7 install log in screen and all my usb's were still disabled. So i decided to reinstall over the top of my original windows and planned to do a restore previous version once i got in to windows.

So all went well i got in to windows and highlight my windows folder to restore to 3 days before the system driver install but the option to restore was greyed out. I figured i must have to activate my windows and upon typing in my key i received a message saying my key has been blocked by microsoft. I bought a windows 7 ultimate x64 version over 5 months ago. It was certified as genuine from when i bought it up till today. It has been verified various times throughout those months.

I have been regularly updating my computer, verified on microsoft's download site as recently as 4 days ago, registered to my live account. I am 100% sure this is a legit key. I must have went through 5 startups / partial installs, 3 full installs but only 1 attempt at trying to activate my key. Why has my key been blocked i own my copy, no one else has ever got a hold of my key, it is only on my computer, i only tried to activate from my personal back up installation. What is going on? Why has my key been blocked?
