    For example, when I clicked on the link above, Download TSG SysInfo, I get this popup: "SysInfo.exe couldn't be downloaded". I tried to download Adobe Reader and got the same thing. I cannot open a pdf file from an email message. I have tried many solutions from many internet sites, but none worked. I reset IE to default setting, messed around with manage add-ons and other settings, but no luck. I ran full scan with Microsoft security essentials and malware, no threats detected. disabled windows firewall, didn't help. I can surf the internet ok, but sometimes get the pop-up, internet explorer has stopped working. I would ditch IE and use google chrome but can't download it. the problem seems to be with IE.
    My computer is a dell i660, intel core i5-3330 with windows 7 home premium 64 bit, about 2 years old and works great otherwise.
    any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks krob28
    PS this is my first post so I probably missed some things.
