    Hi User,

    That frechur is programmed by web site developers. Some sites do not want
    you to know the download url to stop you accessing the download directly.

    Regards.

    Sysinternals Process Explorer:

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653.aspx

    Process Explorer download link can be seen in the context menu "Copy
    Shortcut" as well as in the bottom left corner of the window:

    http://i381.photobucket.com/albums/oo253/mxtvmn271208/dm_ie_01.jpg

    but not in Internet Explorer Download Manager:

    http://i381.photobucket.com/albums/oo253/mxtvmn271208/dm_ie_02.jpg

    which proves that it is an Internet Download Manager problem not
    Sysinternals developers'

    Thanks

    And some Windows Live (and Internet Explorer) cookies absurdities:

    OK, I will stay signed in and write comments as long as you want without
    cookies enabled.

    IE doesn't have a "download manager", it just has a simple download dialog
    which is similar to others used in Windows itself. If you want a "download
    manager", why not just install one of the many 3rd party tools that provide
    this? IE7Pro has a similar download manager to Firefox, and despite the name
    works equally well with IE8.
