IE downloading files as _ versus . extensions RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using IE 10.  On the same PC, when I try and download ANY file (exe, zip, axpx etc) it prompts to download it as an _exe or _zip etc.  If I log in as another user on my PC, it downloads fine.  I checked the IE security settings on every single window and compared to mine and they're identical.  I know that this is an issue on our GPO but do not know which exact setting is causing this to happen so am unable to modify it from there.

    It does not matter what website it is as it happens on them all.  No I cannot just use Chrome as my issue also happens in CRM which requires IE (CRM 4.0).  I didn't have this issue until the GPO was changed but they don't know which exact setting must change to permit it.

  • Hi,

    tell you system administrators the GPO key is the Security zone templates.

    ensure you are using their defaults.

    Internet Options>Security tab, click "Reset all zones to default"

    Regards.
