Is your ie wont let download?
If you download files or attachments in IE8 and IE9. It says “(filename) contained a virus and was deleted” or “This file cannot be downloaded”. Everything will download fine in Chrome and Firefox and these files do not contain viruses , it happens on every file when try to download, or every attachment in all emails.When i try to download anything,updates,it will download the file then delete it telling me “this program contained a virus and was deleted”
You will receive a ‘action centre’ message saying MSE has been disabled, and when click on the message it says MSE can’t be started, when you try to open MSE independently it says ” Windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. you may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.”(even ran as administrator). windows defender has been disabled with all the same results.
When you try reinstalling MSE,it willsays its already installed, when trying to uninstall current MSE its says “you do not have sufficient access to uninstall MSE. please contact your system administrator.”
