    Opening .png files in Internet Explorer prompts me to download


    Whenever I open a .png file saved on my computer with Internet Explorer, instead of displaying the .png image in the browser as it should, a window comes up asking me if I want to save or open the image, as if I was trying to download something from the internet. Selecting save does what it usually would, and saves the file to the computer again. Selecting open simply opens the windows asking me to save or open again.

    This does not occur on all of my computers. Currently, it only happens on my desktop running Windows 10, but my laptop, which is running the same version, same build, same update, does not do this.

    Can someone please help me solve this issue? Thank you.

    :)

    [IE6] Internet Explorer Cannot Download / [SITE]

    Hi guys,

    I'm having a problem with my Internet Explorer 6.

    In any website I try to access, I get this

    Internet Explorer cannot download / SITE
    Internet Explorere was not able to open this internet site.

    There's a downloading file right behind it. I'm just trying to access a site, but it shows that. Why is it? Is there a way to cure this error?
