IE 8 Download From FTP Site Without Login

    I can not download a file with IE 8 32 bit with two computers, one running
    Vista and the other Windows 7 because everytime I get a login box requiring
    me to login. I do not have login credentials and can not login even
    anonymously.

    The Tech who sent me the link says the other clients have no problem using
    the link---they apparently do not get the login box.

    I have this problem on two different Windows computers with Firefox also. I
    finally tried Chrome and no login box appeared so I was finally able to
    download the file!

    Is there some setting in IE 8 or Windows that will allow me to download from
    an FTP site without the login issue like with the Chrome browser?

    Just talking out loud;

    T hat's strange. Are you sure the login box is coming from that site or is
    it possibly something at your end? I can sort of picture it being either the
    Cards & Logins box a la FF, or perhaps the ISP is intermittantly
    security-checking for passwords as sometimes happens. There are a few
    possibilities, another being a slight mis-spelling of the URL that goes to a
    place where sign-in is required.
