Windows 7: External download managers won't work with IE9

External download managers won't work with IE9

Recently my external download manager stopped working with IE9. This means the IE9 simply ignores it and uses its own download manager. I uses Orbit for a long time, and when it stopped working, I tried a few others, but none of them worked. This started not long ago.
Does anyone have an idea how to solve this?

I've had to reinstall, although running a download manager with IE9 seems to be a bit more of a pain with applications that still expect IE9 to run like IE8 did (this was changed, apparently, so the code path to get to a download window is not exactly the same anymore - if your DL manager worked by hooking these calls, it may not work without an update now).
