Help!!!I am having problems with IE 6.0 not wanting to download a file from any site. When I click on the download button it comes up with the window saying that Internet Explorer is downloading. After about a minute, it come up with a error saying "Internet Explorer could not downloade file. "Internet Explorer could not open site. Requested site is either unavailable or can not be opened" I have un-installed and re-installed IE 6.0 several times and it still does not work.
Does anyone know how I can fix this.
Thanks I am about to pull my hair out.

Hi angel1129

You can't download from any site ?

So if I ask you to do the following - you can't do it ?

Please post your startup list by doing the following :-

Please go here and download startuplist 1.51 :-

Download to any folder or your desktop
Unzip the zipfile
Double click the exe file
go to Edit - select all - copy - and paste the results in a new post here

This is often a Cache issue.

Depending on your operating system, it can be helpful to delete your cache folders in MS-DOS, thus forcing MS to create new ones, containing brand new index.dat files, on reboot.

If this is Win 95 or 98, start the computer in MS-DOS mode. If you're running Windows ME, that means starting up with a Boot disk.

Type the following lines, pressing ENTER after each one:

cd\
cd windows
smartdrv
deltree tempor~1
deltree history
deltree cookies

NOTE: Press Y if you are prompted to confirm any deletion

Type win (or 'exit'), or hit ctrl-alt-delete followed by clicking enter in order to return to Windows

NOTE: This is assuming the path to these folders is the default one
Is they're located elsewhere/named differently, adapt the path accordingly.

If this is Windows XP, start by going to Internet Options > Temp. Internet files, and hit "delete files".
