  1. Internet Explorer 11 Downloading Issue


    The behaviour of Internet Explorer 11 has changed of late, probably after some Windows updates.
    When I attempt to download pictures or software from legitimate sites such as Flickr, Adobe or AVG for example, I receive the “This file can’t be downloaded” error message. This did not happen in the past.

    Most references to this problem suggest as a solution to reset IE completely – I tried this and the problem remains.
    I tried running IE without add-ons and that did not help.
    I temporarily disabled my AVG Internet Security software – no help.
    I did a system restore, but no help as my restore points don’t go back far enough.

    The only workarounds I am able to find are

    • Run IE11 as administrator
    • Uncheck “Enable Protected Mode” under IE security tab
    Both remove the problem though I don’t like either.

    It would appear that lots of people experience the same issue but I have not been able to find a solution, only the workarounds above.
    Is anyone able to assist?

    :)

    Internet Explorer 11 no longer starts on my computer

    Why is it, since yesterday, Internet Explorer 11 no longer starts on my computer?
    Instead I get the following message:

    Iexplorer.exe – Application Error

    The application was unable to start correctly (0xc0000018)

    Click OK to close application



    Perhaps I need to re-install Internet Explorer 11 but how do I do that?
    All the Internet Explorer 11 downloads on the internet are for Windows 7 but I do not see any downloads for Internet Explorer 11 for Windows 10.

    Internet Explorer 11 Downloading Issue

    Hum, after "upgrading" to Windows 10 on my wife's PC she can't get Internet Explorer 11 to even run. I set up my very same model PC a month ago and my IE 11 runs fine. Seems like M$ is adrift in dumb ideas.

    PeterAstle,

    .............. “This file can’t be downloaded” error message....................

    Is this the complete error message ?

    Give this a try:
    Open IE11 > Tools > SmartScreen Filter > Check/tick Turn off SmartScreen Filer

    Will that help ?

  6. Thanks for your response.
    I tried to follow your suggestion, but in my version of IE11 under "Tools" there is no SmartScreen Filter option so I was unable to follow this through.

    Thank you.
    I see that there are in fact two different "Tools" menus. I found the one you referred to and turned off SmartScreen Filter. Unfortunately it didn't solve the download issue
