Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 3.093 GHz / 1023 MB
Internet Explorer cannot download ***************.avi from xxxxxxxxxx.com.

Internet Explorer was not able to open this Internet site. The requested site
is either unavailable or cannot be found. Plese try again later.

This is the message I get when I try to right click and Save Target As.

What must be done to correct this?

Thanks,
Jim

Try this: Temporarily disable the Do not save encrypted pages to disk option in Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Start Internet Explorer.
2. On the Tools menu, click Internet Options, and then click the Advanced tab.
3. Under Security, click to clear the Do not save encrypted pages to disk check box, and then click OK.

That only appears to be for Outlook which I do not use. Or does that make any difference?
Thanks,
Jim

No need to double-post http://www.computing.net/answers/wi... plus it's against the rules of this site.

"This is the message I get when I try to right click and Save Target As."

Sometimes you are not trying to download what you think you are, and you get a message like that because you are not going directly to the file.

Hold your cursor over what you were trying to download, and look at where the link takes you to in your IE screen in the taskbar at lower left.
If it does NOT show http://..........(name of file).avi with nothing else around that, then it's not going directly to the file, and it can't be downloaded by RIGHT clicking on it and choosing Save Target As or similar.
In that case you have to click on the file or the link to it, in this case to display the file, then you should be able to save the file one way or another where the file is (displayed, in this case).

If you don't see an address in your taskbar when you hold the cursor over something you want to download, RIGHT click on it and choose Copy shortcut if you see that, and Paste in Notepad, to see what the address is.

Sometimes the proper address is there, but it's surrounded on either end by some Java or html code - if you delete the parts of the line that are added code, the address then usually works to go directly to the file.
