    Another term for this is refferrer logging, and it's mainly used to stop other webmasters from using their bandwith for downloads. You have this feature disabled, so it can't tell which site you came from and therefore won't let you download it.

    I don't know how to enable it in IE, but in Opera you can find the option amongst the Quick Preferences in the File menu.

    If it is happening using both browsers it means that you have the dreaded Norton internet security or similar useless program that insists on blocking needed referral headers.
