IE8 Problem Downloading (MODDED AND UNMODDED)

    Before I reach for another browser, I wonder if we can work out what's going wrong with IE8 on my Win7 system. I have not done anything special with it or the network, everything so far "just works" with regard to Internet access via my ADSL/Router/Wifi/HomePlugs - including the Humax TV portal.

    When I try to use the IE8 address bar to download via the DLNA mediaID URL or the mod WebIF OPT+ button, it hangs saying "Getting file information". If I use the URL in wget, it works.

    Any clues where to look for the problem? Or should I just give up and load Chrome or Firefox?

    Anybody who has had success with IE8, please say so we can get an idea of whether the problem is commonplace.

    Does anyone still use IE8 any more? since IE9 was released in March.

    I don't fix what ain't broke! From what I've seen of it, I don't much like the way it works.
