When I try to download a Zip file, IE 6 opens a new page with nothing but a square with a red X. I can download other types of files with no problems. For example an EXE file.I have gone into Options/Security and enabled file downloading. I have windows XP Pro SP2. I did not have this problem before SP2.

I have PKZIP on my machine. I have no trouble opening a Zip file, just downloading. I feel sure it has something to do with SP2

I dowloaded Stardownloader and that works. But I'm still curious on why the problem exists.

Thanks for the info on Stardowloader
