Usually when I right click on a link that is downloadable, and click save target as, then I can automatically download the item, I haven't done any downloading in a while, so this could have been a problem which has been occuring for a while.
When I do right click, a message comes up saying "Internet Explorer was not able to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable and cannot be found. Please try again later". I asked my friend if he could see if he could download the same item, and it worked for him, so there must be something wrong with my computer, this has happened at two different sites.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
