I'm running Windows 98 on my other machine and using IE as a browser and somehow it wouldn't download a thing. When left clicking on any file link, nothing happens. When right clicking and choose 'Save Target As...', a download dialog box pops up for less than a second and then disappears. Even when my friend tried sending me files though the Yahoo! Messenger, it would stop downloading at about 94% every time. This happens on every site I visit. Please help.
