Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

My computer won`t let me download anything. I keep getting a message that says ''Your current security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded'' I have checked everything! I have turned all security systems off, set all the possible settings the same as my other working computers, and uninstalled my spywares. But, this message still pops up everytime I try to download anything to try to fix the problem. This must be a virus, worm, etc.? My next step is to do an F10 recover? Any ideas as to why this is happening? Michael...

    My computer won`t let me open any attachments now from emails, it won`t let me download music, fix it programs off the internet, nothing! I have an HP Pavilion a1630n desktop, running Internet Explorer on Windows XP, and Outlook Express mail. I have tried matching all the security settings from my other computers that are running fine and nothing makes a difference! The same messege always pops up. Michael..

My computer won't let me download anything


Most computer users can readily download files from the
Internet with no issue.


Yet, you may experience an error that will not allow you to
download anything from the Internet. Generally, you can readily resolve this
issue with some simple troubleshooting.

Check your antivirus settings.

More often than not, you simply have too strict of security
settings that prevent you from downloading files.

Otherwise, you can try a few other simple fixes to get your
computer to download files.


If you cannot resolve the issue by troubleshooting, you may
have a serious error that demands the assistance of a computer specialist.



Turn down your security settings.


Go to your browser\'s security settings.

You can change all settings to default or even low settings.



You may even see an option there for enabling downloading.

For example, Internet Explorer has a check box for
"enable file download."


Try to see if these looser security settings will allow you
to download files.



Get a new Web browser.


You may have installed your browser improperly.

You can reinstall your Web browser.


Alternatively, install a new Web browser and see if you can
download files using it.

Sometimes, this will remedy the problem.


Internet Explorer, Firefix, Safari, Chrome and other free
web browsers work well.



Update your computer.


Sometimes, a computer update can remedy your downloading
problem.

If you use Microsoft Windows, install the latest service
pack.


Reboot your computer after the installation to see if you
can now download files.

If you still cannot download anything, you need to see a
computer specialist.

Virus If Explorer Won\'t
Download Anything






The Internet is laced with malicious software just waiting
to take a crack at your personal information.

While rare, certain bits of malware have been known to
hijack a user\'s browser to prevent the download of repair or removal tools.

When this occurs, destroying the infection can be more
frustrating than usual, but is certainly not impossible.

Restart your computer.

You can do this by clicking the "Start" menu,
select "Shut Down" and click "Restart."




Press the "F8" button repeatedly as your computer reboots to activate
the Windows Advanced Options menu.









Select "Safe Mode with Networking."





Press "Enter" to load Windows.

Safe Mode is designed to allow you to troubleshoot issues
with your Windows operating system by limiting the types of processes that can
run -- this should block the virus or trojan from controlling your browser.



Remove the Virus




Download the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
(MSRT).


MSRT is a free tool developed by Microsoft to assist you in
removing harmful files from your computer.







Open MSRT by double-clicking the icon on your desktop.


Click "Next" to progress to the "Scan
Type" pane.







Choose "Full Scan."


While this scan may take longer, it will ensure that every
corner of your computer is checked for malicious software.







Remove any harmful files that MSRT discovers by allowing the
software to delete them or by manually destroying the files and folders.







Empty your Recycle Bin and restart your computer to boot
Windows in standard mode.


Your browser will now function correctly.

When I try to download anything I get a message that says my security settings are not allowing this download. I turned of security and still got the same message.


The computer is on alert, a messenger to the user. Several computer features perform alert functionalities. First, the firewalls are feature functions on the computer that prevents any program least recognized as belonging to the system from integration. Alternately said, a firewall on the computer disallows any program installations either achievable with CDs, Disk or DVD media or simple downloadable from networked structure of devices. In the situation that external programs were being introduced by the user, a message alert is displayed either as warning of possible infiltration or requesting permission for progress. Second, the computer security settings usually prevent any unauthorized integration of programs into users default settings. In which instance, the user has to disable the computers security else downloads of program installations would be nonexistent. Third, internet worked computer device usually has security setting for several purposes. First, internet security setting on the computer allows the default user of the computer to gain access to networked device often common with subscriber connections. Once an authorized user is recognized, permission is acquired to navigate the network. Alternately, internet computer securities disallow intrusion programs. For example while on the internet, it is possible to request programs either irrelevant in functionality, harmful ware clogging computers features as default. Finally, internet security make impossible hidden intrusions on the from several device operating under auspices least observable above program encryptions. However, a computer alert performs as reminder to the user that an introduction of programs from an elsewhere location is about to take place. Usually, a popup logo would require authorization approval to continue with accessibility or authorization disapproval for alternate response to be achieved. In the situation of yahoo messenger installation alert would require disabling the computer firewalls if any installation the program may be required. A computer firewall set as enabled would hardly allow installations or downloads unless the feature was set to disabled by the computer user for resuming of program transferability.

When i am trying to download somthing camputer reply me that ur current security settings did not allow this file.


you must be trying to download a file from a website that is reported attack sites and reported web forgeries.
Your pc security is just working to protect your computer from being infected with virus and being hacked by other computers.
But.... if you sure the file you are downloading is safe, and the sites is trusted then try doing this to download the files freely.
1. On the Menu of your web browser, click the Tools
2. Select Options
3. Press the Security tab
4. Uncheck all the three boxes and click Ok.
That's it! Download the file.
After you finish downloading, Check all the three boxes again
So that when you browse on the different sites you are protected again.
