Windows 7: File Download Dialog Box Not Appearing in IE9

File Download Dialog Box Not Appearing in IE9

A friend of mine just purchased a Dell Laptop running Windows 7 and IE9 (both the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of IE9 were installed, but he is using the 32-bit version). He wanted to download the latest Adobe Flash Player 10.3, so we went to the Adobe website, clicked on the Download button, and waited for the 'Run or Save' dialog box to appear. It never did.


We then went to another website (forgot which one) and tried to download a file. Same problem....we clicked on the Download button and waited for something to happen. Once again, the file download dialog box never appeared.


Other than not being able to download files, IE9 appears to be working fine. Any suggestions for identifying and fixing this file download problem would be appreciated. Thanks in advance......

Internet Explorer Information bar: frequently asked questions

Specifically look at "Can I turn off the Information bar?"

Thanks for the reference site. It may indeed be that the information bar has been turned off on his new Dell......I'll check it out tomorrow.

Is this the link you used ?
Adobe - Install a different version of Adobe Flash Player

When you clicked Download Now button, did you notice the bar at the bottom of the new window,
Like this one .........

Yes that is the link I used, but no I did not notice the information bar at the bottom (or top) of the page. I'm thinking his bar somehow got turned off, which I will check tomorrow.

Thanks for your response.
