Fix bug that can’t download files on the network

If you encounter this phenomenon when you click a link to download a file, but nothing happens, or the Save as dialog box appears and then quickly disappears, you can overcome this problem in the following way. Internet Explorer (IE) uses the Attachment Manager to protect you from the dangerous attachments, by specifying the file type and adjust the corresponding setting, so sometimes you can not download files. However, there are many causes of this problem, so you be done sequentially according to the following steps to fix it. 1. First, you need to check your internet connection and make sure it’s still working. 2. Delete temporary files, cookies, browsing history,… by using the tool which available in Windows is Disk Cleanup (right click the system drive, select Properties > Disk Cleanup), or third parties applications which is CCleaner, then restart the computer. 3. Select the folder or a different location to save the downloaded file because the folder you select can be damaged or you not enough right to write on it. 4. Do not use default name to save the file, try to rename of it and note that there should be no mark to minimize the incurred error. 5. If you are using a third parties download manager such as IDM, then try disable it and check download again. 6. If you are sure that the download file is safe, try to disable the firewall (right click on the network icon select Open Network and Sharing Center > Windows Firewall > Turn Windows Firewall on or off) or antivirus software installed on the computer temporarily. 7. Ensure the downloaded file has been enabled. First, you open the Internet Options by pressing the key combination Windows + R, entering the keyword inetcpl.cpl and switching to the Security tab, selecting Internet zone then clicking Custom level.

This will display a warning dialog when you run an application or file is not safe. If the above setting on does not fix the problem, you try to restore the original settings initially through options Reset all zones to default level. 8. To download a file, IE need to create the file temporate cache . However, if the file is delivered over HTTPS protocol or option “Do not save encrypted pages to disk” is enabled (located in the Advanced tab > Settings), then the file cache will not be created. In this case, the download will fail with warning message, “Internet Explorer cannot download or File couldn’t be downloaded”. 9. Most browsers will automatically launch the anti-virus program to scan the file when it is finished downloading. If you sure that the file is safe, please disable this feature by editing the Registry of Windows. First, you open the Run dialog box, the key combination Windows + R and enter the keyword regedit > Enter to open the Registry. Continue navigate to the following key: HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionPoliciesAttachments If you can’t find Attachments, you create it by right click and select New > DWORD (32-bit), then name it ScanWithAntiVirus with value is 1. ScanWithAntiVirus can be set with a number of value: – 1: turn off or disable the virus scan when download finished. – 2: scan option. – 3: enable virus scanning upon completion of the download or save the file. 10.
