IE constantly asking to download

Hello,
When I have internet explorer open and im surfing somes sites internet explorer constantly asks me to click to download an item. I do not know what it is so I have no downloaded it. Other sites it works just fine. One of the sites i have a problem on is another forum and I've been using it for weeks fine just today its been asking to download items and its only ie, any suggestions? Oh and I ran malware bytes and it did not come up with anything. Thanks

Edit: A notepad file comes up if I downlaod it and says this
".app_content_51546247891 a.uiLinkSubtle { display: none; }
.app_content_51546247891 a.UIImageBlock_ICON_Image { display: none; }

#bootloader_Zvucx { height: 42px; }"

I am not sure what it is but it comes up when I am looking at the news and everything.

I could help you better, if you'd told us WHAT exactly it tries to download. Generally spoken, not to download was a good decision...especially since said pages still seem to work fine for you.
I never download anything that I didn't initiate myself. Depending on what they try to force on you I would either change my settings for Javascript or avoid such places altogether.

It is a note pad file titled xd_proxy and the notepad has this in it ".app_content_51546247891 a.uiLinkSubtle { display: none; }
.app_content_51546247891 a.UIImageBlock_ICON_Image { display: none; }

#bootloader_Zvucx { height: 42px; } "

That's either an error or an attack via the dreaded Facebook
Like I said, disable Javascript on those pages (under Tools/Internet Options/Security/Custom Level)
or just sit tight and wait until FB solved the issue.
I simply dumped that whole FB garbage several month ago and I'm still alive and well

I ugh actually have never had a facebook page... so I probably have an error. It does not come up on here, or msn.com but everwhere else it pops up.

I've only noticed it while at fox news, and it seems to have just started within the past couple of days?
