I'm assuming this is an issue related only to my machine and not an IE7 problem.
When I click on this link (or one in similar format on the same page), the new window will initially begin to open. Then the new browser instance is redirected to another site....which seems fine & the page switches to the new address, then suddenly the window disappears and the "File Download-Security Warning" box appears and asks if I want to save the file or find a program online to open it with:
Program Name: browserRedirect
Type: Unknown File Type
Clicking on "Find" takes me to the Windows File Association web page where it says that windows does not recognize this MIME type.
Here's the actual link:
If I need to register a file type, I don't where to start! I scrolled through all the file types in My Computer and honestly, I'm at a loss as to what to do.
Could this be related to some corrupted mime file or something?
I'm running Windows XP SP2 Home with the security settings on their default settings (for the most part), but I had even temporarily switched everything to the lowest settings for troubleshooting purposes and also ran IE with no add-ons, but still no luck. Also switched the "open pages based on content" to enable.
BTW, the link works fine on another machine offsite running XP Pro with IE7 and also a third running WINME with IE6.
Ran Spybot, with nothing found.
We use Kerio personal firewall and AVG antivirus.
I stopped all 3 programs on two occasions for troubleshooting too, but no change.
Help would be GREATLY appreciated!
