    i set my internet explorer security from medium to high and i thought that would do it, but instead of "cannot dislpay the webpage" i get "your current security settings do no allow this file to be downloaded".

    i have determined its only some links that will not work for me... i have no trouble with myspace links or soundclick links. but dl.dropbox links, and lightningmp3 links do not work for me.

    Is your account on the computer an administrator account?

    Also, internet explorer is nothing but trouble. Firefox be the way to go!

    same thing happens to me. if it isn't soundclick, my computer wont open the page. I've turned off my firewall, and reduced my internet security settings, to no avail. I dont know wht the hell is going on.
    Meathead.

    That's almost certainly not the problem, leave your firewall on.

    Can you load the pages that we link to if you don't click them? For example, when it says the page can't be loaded, what happens if you refresh it?
    What happens if you manually copy and paste the links into your URL bar?
    Try holding ctrl while clicking a link to force IE to open it in a new tab.

    i set my internet explorer security from medium to high and i thought that would do it, but instead of "cannot dislpay the webpage" i get "your current security settings do no allow this file to be downloaded".
    With high security settings, it seems your browser won't allow websites to open windows to other sites. This is to prevent you from accidentally clicking on a link in a site you trust (say, homerecording.com) that sends you to a site you don't trust (i.e. ads.malware.ca).

    What other security software are you running? Some of it may interfere with your web browsing.

    refreshing, ctrl click, and copy and paste link = same result.

    like i said, its only a few of the common music host sites like dl.dropbox, and lightningmp3.. .which sucks because everyone uses those.

    do you think i could add these sites to my pc's safe list?
    is there such a thing?

    or is it that i have to have something from these sites installed on my pc?
