Your Current Security Settings Do Not Allow This File To Be Downloaded

Downloads on Windows Server:-


I found that in addition to enabling "File Download" (Tools > Internet Options > Security (tab) > Internet > Custom Level > Downloads >> File Download) you also have to Enable (or set to Prompt) these other two options:
"Launching applications and unsafe files" and
"Launching programs and files in an IFRAME" (this one is only needed if your download occurs in an IFrame),
These 2 options are found under the "Miscellaneous" subsection, on the same settings screen as the "File Download" option.
After making these changes, I was then able to download files from sites, without having to put them into the "Trusted Sites" zone.

Manually Uninstalling Oracle in Windows

  • Uninstall all Oracle components using the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI).
  • Run regedit and delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE key. This contains registry entires for all Oracle products.
  • Delete any references to Oracle services left behind in the following part of the registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Ora*). It should be pretty obvious which ones relate to Oracle.
  • Reboot your machine.
  • Delete the "C:\Oracle" directory, or whatever directory is your ORACLE_BASE.
  • Delete the "C:\Program Files\Oracle" directory.
  • Empty the contents of your "C:\temp" directory.
