Windows 7: Weird Issues; Chrome blocking downloads, I.E./Steam appearing blank.

Weird Issues; Chrome blocking downloads, I.E./Steam appearing blank.

As the title suggest, Chrome is blocking everything I download. Google informs you of how to correct the issue using the following method;

Go to the Start menu > Control Panel.
Select Internet Options. This should open the Internet Properties window.
Select the Security tab.
Select Internet zone (globe icon).
Click the Custom level button. This will open the Security Settings window.
Scroll down to Downloads > File download.
Select Enable.
Scroll down the list further to Miscellaneous > Launching applications and unsafe files.
Select Prompt.
Click OK.


However that doesn't work for me, in fact reducing the security level to as minimal as possible doesn't work either.

Attempted to download through Internet Explorer is ineffective as well because opening I.E. results in a blank page. No matter what website I try to access, the page remains blank. The steam store/community/news tabs all lead to blank pages as well.

I fear I may have some harmful software on my computer, but I'm not sure how to correct or even diagnosis this issue.

Thanks.

I don't seem to have that option. More information is the only prompt that appears, which takes me to the screen explaining why I'm being above which I outlined in my OP.
