    I cannot download anything from IE8! It just goes to my default search
    engine (Bing) and gives me a notice such as:

    "We did not find any results for

    Hi O'Riely,

    Go to http://forums.cnet.com/

    and post that download link and your Windows and IE versions for their
    support people to have a look at. From what I can see the issue is all at
    cnets end.
    or
    Do you have BitTorrent installed? Ditto... contact their support site. (you
    may need to purchase the commercial version to qualify for support there).
    or
    (Assuming IE8) Tools>Internet Options, Security tab, click "Reset all zones
    to default"
    +
    also you may have to add cnet to your trusted sites, but the cnet forum will
    be able to supply that answer. You may have to tweak your default security
    settings to allow "Open files based on content not extension"
    or

    There are a number of other shareware hosters that also offer that download.
    http://www.google.com/search?q=unlocker1.8.8.exe

    Internet outages may be preventing some mirrored sites from connecting. You
    could wait and try again later.

    (strange... I do not see the authors web site in the google search
    results.<wink> it could be that the author has withdrawn their software from
    download)

    Regards.

    The problem seems related to Webshots. I had to do a system restore to
    enable downloads again. I've written to Webshots. The issue affected all
    downloads from all sites. Very Weird!

    Other comcast users have reported that their current comcast toolbar was
    incompatible with IE8. Check for an updated IE8 compatible version if you
    have it installed.

    (Why I wonder<wink> would the toolbar cause IE8 to crash when I download
    something from another site<wink>

    You are probably running XP SP2 (which does not have DEP - Data Execution
    Prevention) Update to XP SP3 for additional security to your IE8 browser.

    Regards.
