Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

Q: Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

Hello everyone!
Last night I installed Bitcomet (latest version). Well I'm done using it and I uninstalled it via programs and features. Then I rebooted. Now when I find a file on Internet explorer 7 (any kind of file really) that I want to save or open, nothing happens.

If I click on a file to download the usual Windows Prompt opens and asks me to Save/Open/Cancel and if I click Open or Save, nothing happens. This use to work fine before I installed BitComet.

I figured out the problem. When you install bit comment it ties itself to I.E. browser extension during the install. So it kinda becomes the download manager for I.E. So I need to figure out how to set this back to default since I uninstalled Bitcomet.
I set programs to default. I looked in file extensions and that looks normal. Crap this sucks!
Any ideas?


Preferred Solution: Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Internet Explorer Save/Open Function

You could try opening Internet Options in Control Panel. Click on the Programs tab and select Manage Add-Ons. It is possible that removing BitComet did not remove the reference within Internet Explorer.
Other than that may be worth checking your File Associations and make sure BitComet is not set as the default application for opening specific file extensions.

I've just done a full factory default restore using Packard Bell's Smart Restore. Wiping out all my installed programes which is what I expected however when re-installing my browser and addon IE7Pro I no longer have the drop and drag function allowing me to highlight a search term or web written link and drag it to the left or right opening up a new tab in a new window.

I would like to know how I get it back, Or if I've missed something simple disenabling this function thanks.

Both my browser and add-on version is the same as before I did the restore.

I never could download mp3 file from one website, I could just listen to it with quicktime. When I doubleclicked on it - a new ie window opened and there was this line (guicktime) and I could just hear it, not download or save...I thought always that they made so intentionaly but yesterday I saw my gf how she used her laptop and easily downloaded it with winamp..no problems!

And I got so very mad, that I uninstalled quicktime in one minute, but that didn't solve the problem. I restarted and nothing. The only difference was that I now couldn't also listen to it...nothing! - when I doubleclicked on the mp3 I got a new webpage opened and nothing...before I could atleast hear it with quicktime..

I read many things about winamp, and how you must select types of files in settings of winamp, and also folder options in my computer...tell which file is opened with which program..I did all of it. I also activated winamp agent who guards so no other application takes over the files you set for winamp to handle. But that did nothing.
Then I vasted a lot of time with ie settings...nothing..

And then I remembered from my amateur experience - I looked for whatever audio program I had on my pc - I found also realplayer and windows media player..I made sure that they dont control no type of files. It didn't help. After that I decided to uninstall also realplayer, soon I discovered I can not.. Read all of instructions about unninstal and I couldn't. Then I remembered a... Read more

We have user at the office who no longer gets prompted to open files when he clicks on a link, his only option is to save as or cancel. For example if he clicks on a link to an excel document, instead of being able to immediately open the file, he can only view it after saving it to his desktop, or cancel the download all together.

This has to be a settings in IE or something, anyone know what to change?

Hi all,

I'm not entirely sure if these problems are related. My initial problem was that I have been unable to open,run or save files from my internet browser (Internet Explorer, I think version 7) for the past week. For example, when I try to open an email attachment the dialogue box appears asking me to save/open etc. Regardless of which I choose it will download but then not open or save to the destination. The same scenario happens for forum attachments and program downloads irrespective of file type.

Some internet searching found that most people were able to fix this problem by uninstalling AVG anti-virus software. This is when I became aware of my second problem. My AVG Free 8.0 started asking me for a licence number at approximately the same time as the first problem started. When I try to uninstall AVG Free 8.0 I get the following error:

Local machine: installation failed
Error: Action failed for file avi7.avg: creating backup....
Error 0x80070020 %DESTINATION% = "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Avg\avi7.avg.install_backup", %SOURCE% = "C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Avg\avi7.avg"
Error 0x80004004

Unfortunately, I have not been able to find a way to avoid this error message when uninstalling AVG Free 8.0 that did not require me to download another small program ( AVG remover tool ?). I've tried checking different combinations of options when uninstalling all to no avail.

Unfortunately I don't have 'Hijack This' ... Read more

I am using Internet explorer 8 in 7 emulation mode and it has now stopped saving or opening any downloads. The process begins asking open or save and allows me to state where to save if i take the option. However for some reason files no longer open and save to the designated folder.

I am also unable to open any webmail attachments (Btyahoo) word excel pdf ect.

I am using Vista Home Premium (fully updated according to windows update)

This problem occurs in both accounts and I have also tried turning UAC off.

Many Thanks for any support you may offer.

Dear Sirs,

My name is Clifford Griffin. I just happened on this site by accident.
I sure hope you can help me.

My operating system is Windows XP SP2.

I am currently running IE version 7. But you should know that I will
experience the Identical problem while running IE v6.0.2800... or IE

Since my IE does not work I am using Firefox to communicate with

Most of the time when I try to access the browser I get a blank
window with the following error pop-up.

"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.
We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Included in that message is a statement that says: "To see what data
this error report contains click here." Upon clicking here I see
the following error signature:

"AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 7.0.6000.16441 ModName: kernel32.dll
ModVer: 5.1.2600.2945 Offset: 00012a5b"

There is also an extremely lengthy and detailed report entitled "Error
Report Contents" included, but it will not allow me to copy it.

Sometimes when I bring up the browser a window will appear just
as it should. But when I try to follow any link I get the same scenario
as explained above.

Can you help me?

Please let me know what further information you need.

Kindest Regards,

My IE history function stopped working quite a while ago when I was using

When I select the "history" icon I get a list starting with History and containing only the file "index.dat". The only other item in the history list is
"desktop.ini". I have scanned the registry and it is OK. Is there any way to fix this without reinstalling IE?

Not sure what happened. The Visio files were opening just fine a few minutes ago, and now when I try to open them, IE prompts me continuously for "Open, Save, Save as." I tried all three options for the fun of it and IE still prompts every time.
Tried opening them from a remote PC and they open just fine. Can't do anything with them on my PC except view them in Visio itself.
I've tried resetting IE settings. Uninstalling IE 11 and going down to 10. Nothing in event viewer for IE.

Here's a challenge. I'm using IE8 with Vista Home Premium. At times, when I enter a username & password, IE8 will ask me if I want to save it. If I do not, I notice the next time I enter that same username & password, IE8 does not ask if I want to save.

How can I get this to save the username & password when IE8 does not give me the option, or how can I set IE8 to ask me each time to save such.

I've never seen anything like this. Okay, here's the system rundown --- Running win 7 pro sp1 64 bit on a Dell xps 8000. Replaced hard drive one month ago, and I've used Seagate's diagnostic tool to check out hard drive, which didn't find any errors with the hard drive.

So, here's problem 1:
Computer was running great up until four days ago. It wouldn't wake up out of sleep properly. It would freeze. I would have to reboot to wake it up. It won't even let me LOG OFF correctly because when I go to log back on, I don't get the prompt to choose the user or enter my password. When I reboot --- that I can only do by shutting on and off the power, it's fine. The computer starts up fine in SAFE MODE, so I'm not detecting any issues there.

Problem 2:
Internet explorer 10 (got it with one of the updates two weeks ago) simply would HANG and not open. Even with I would click it once and open task manager to see what was happening, it showed multiple instances of explorer open. So, what I did was turn OFF Explorer 10 in the "turn windows features on or off" section. But when I when to turn them back on to see if it would reset, I not only lost the default windows icons from the start bar, Explorer refused to initialize when I tried to start it from "Programs" or from clicking the explorer.exe icon in both Programs (64 bit) and Programs (x86).

As a result of the verification, it is confirmed that it is not related to Adobe's Flash Player and is related to the function of Shockwave Flash Object installed in Windows 10 Internet Explorer 11.

Therefore, I would like to know whether it is possible to delete and reinstall the Shockwave Flash Object function.
And I would like to know if it is possible to upgrade or downgrade only the version of the Shockwave Flash Object (or any other related function) while leaving the version of Internet Explorer.

Ok, I recently got a new computer with Vista x64 on it and when I try to save something with the "save picture as" option in IE, it sends me to the default save folder and I have to cycle through all my folders to the one I want, every single time.

A:Internet Explorer will not save downloads

I didn't think IE 11 could be run on windows 7, i heard somewhere that the latest IE version for everything other than 8.1 is IE10. Anyway, i avoid internet explorer but i did once change a few of IE 10's security settings up to it's absolute maximum. This had the effect of IE 10 refusing to download any files and requiring me to click a little "link" every time page tried to redirect. This blocking of downloads was not after any type of scan but it was an instant refusal as soon as one attempted any download. if that is what you have experienced it is caused by IE's security settings being on the superhigh setting(which is where you should leave them), and if  that is the case i would suggest just using firefox (or getting google chrome). If this is not a consequence of the security settings for IE i have no clue what it is, sorry.

Any application connected to the internet (From what I have tested, MSN messenger, Firefox and IE), when I use an open or save as dialog, the program freezes, then crashes.

The event viewer only shows an error message for IE, which states :

Here's the deal - I have a quick shortcut to my C drive on the desktop, so that I can just double-click it and go straight to browsing my files. However, today, the search function decided to make itself the primary function. When I double-click it now, it opens a search window instead of the C: drive.

Can someone tell me how to make it so double-clicking it will, by default, use the "open" function instead of "search?" Thanks in advance!

A:Solved: Search function has overridden open function in XP

I have a windows 7 msi laptop that until recently has had no issues.
The past several weeks however, Internet Explorer closes unexpectedly multiple times when I am online. Also, I cannot open PDF files and Adobe Reader will not reinstall. iTunes won't open, and pictures won't open when I double-click them.

No error messages have shown up...the programs simply just do not open. I have the latest version of iTunes, and I am unable to download any version of a PDF file reader, but I previously had Nuance.

I have NO CLUE what to do or how to begin trying to resolve this issue, and most of my work files are PDF so this is becoming a huge problem...please help.

Hello and welcome to TSF,
The first step would be to try a different browser and see if your online problems keeps happening. If you are a hardcore IE fan, see if there is an update for it. As far as your pictures and files are concerned, it might need a simple solution like Disk Defrag. Many people overlook this, but hey it works! You can also do a Disk Cleanup (also built into Windows) which clears some unnecessary junk.
Good Luck!

I am helping a friend who is having a problem with his All-in-One Dell Computer running Windows 7.  I have been all over the internet looking for answers but have not had success.  Whenever I try to download any file it will not download it.  I can't save with it either.
I did download Google Chrome and it installs and does work properly.  I am almost to the point where I believe I am going to have to reinstall Windows in order to correct this problem. Google Chrome will work but in order to do Windows Update I believe that you have to have Internet Explorer functioning.
My friend wants me to help him put Windows 10 on the machine but until I can get the Windows update to work I am dead in the water.
If anybody has any ideas on what I can do, I would sure really appreciate your help.
I've tried to remove update for Internet Explorer 11 but it goes so far and then says it can't be removed.  I've had the same kind of problem with Windows Update.  Can't download any update.  I thought I knew a lot about computers but I am lost.
Thanks again

A:Can't download or save a file in Internet Explorer 11. Please help

Is SP1 installed?
I would also suggest updating from IE 8 to IE 11, then installing all critical updates...before using IE again.  You can download IE 11 using any browser...from IE Downloads .  To use the Windows Update machinery, you must use IE but there are many standalone downloads of key Windows parts and MS programs that don't require IE.

I am using a Windows 2000 system with Internet Explorer 6.0, and I download pictures from the Internet quite frequently by simply right clicking on the mouse and "save as".

Every instance in the past, this has automatically saved the picture as the same file name and graphic format (.gif, .jpg) as the picture I am viewing. However, just recently, I noticed that IE wants to save images as "untitled" and only gives me the option of saving as .bmp.

For instance, I can right click on a picture with the filename "picture.jpg" and IE wants to save it as "untitled.bmp"...and this only started happening recently. Is this a problem with IE or my operating system? I have tried resetting the settings to default in IE, but that doesn't work. What can I do? Thanks!

A:Internet Explorer won't save images correctly
