Default Internet explorer 6.0 - problems with downloads

I've got problems with spyware and adware on my computer, i have got advice on how to get rid of it, by downloading spybot and ad-aware. However, internet explorer doesn't seem to let me download anything. I managed to get spybot after trying loads of different sites. It won't work from your site or most others. I have tried reinstalling IE but that doesn't help. Is this something to do with the stuff infecting my computer or is it seperate? I'd be glad of your help!!

what happens in IE when you try to download something, does nothing happen or does it try to download and then close or what??

also, have you tried another browser like mozilla firefox and see if the same problem occurs?

It says that it is "Done" but the browser is just blank, nothing pops up, nothing happens. I tried to download another browser but it doesn't let me download anything.

I don't know if it is harming my computer but it is very annoying because a lot of the time when I try to go to a web page it redirects me to another page.

if it says done then does it appear in the place you usually download files to? (usually my documents)
also, can you go to add/remove programs (i'm assuming its xp yes?) then click add or remove windows components, de-select the IE box and click next and it may fix it, i can't see it happening.
also, failing those two steps, have you got an I.M., such as MSN Messenger and see if I could send you a file via that??

As a last resort, download Spybot S & D, etc., via someone elses PC. Burn it to a CD and load them on your PC, via the CD. As I said, last resort, but it will work. Bazza
