IE8 Error Internet Explorer cannot download Unspecified Error


  • In my Web app I have a Flash based menu where I select the JavaScript function to run. Everything works ok until I download a PDF file or an Excel doc. AFTER I finish downloading IE8 give me the "Internet Explorer cannot download Unspecified error" if I try to select ANY opcion on my Flash based menu.  I think many people have this kind of problems. Any suggestion?

    Please Help!!!

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

    I don't use the Adobe PDF ActiveX control any more to load PDF docs in IE windows because of known scripting exploits.

    go Start>Search....Adobe Reader and change your Adobe Reader options to not use browser windows.
