Hi everyone, I am trying to use 'browser monitoring' in Internet Explorer 9 using Orbit Downloader, which is the current version, and for some reason, it's not working for me. I also tried this on IE8, but today I upgraded to IE9 thinking it might correct itself, but unfortunately, it still does not work. I enable it in Orbit and everytime I try to download a file, Internet Explorer downloads it regularly through the browser. My new laptop also came with Google Chrome and I tried using Orbit in there as well, but it still won't work, even though it's made to work with that browser as well.

Any ideas?

It will only install the plugin if the browsers are closed. You may have to enable the add-on in Internet Options, too.

I did as you said, uninstalled Orbit and reinstalled with all browsers completely closed, it's still not working. :-(
