The automatic download blocking in Internet Explorer is a security feature that blocks all file download dialog boxes that are not the result of an action you took. Typically, you may see the following message: “To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for more options.” This feature can be annoying, especially if you visit a trustworthy website frequently. Fortunately, you can disable this feature in the program’s settings.
Open Internet Explorer, select “Tools” and then choose “Internet Options.”
Click on the “Security” tab and then select the “Custom level” button.
Scroll to the “Downloads” section and then select “Enable” under “Automatic prompting for file downloads.”
