    Everytime I try to download anything on this computer, I get the error "This
    website requires you to log in" even though most of the sites I access don't
    have that facility.

    Tried RIES without success.

    I use XP Pro sp3 inc all updates + IE 8

    Can anyone suggest a remedy?

  2. Hello,

    Try running IE8 with add-ons disabled.

    Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No
    Add-ons) to start IE8 without any add-ons. Try using the browser and see if
    the same problem arises.

    If the problem does not occur again, start IE8 normally, go to Tools (if the
    menu bar does not appear, hit the Alt key on the keyboard) > Manage Add-ons.
    Disable all the add-ons under 'Toolbars and Extensions'. Enable each add-on
    one at each time and see if the problem occurs again. Once it occurs again
    after enabling an add-on, you have nailed the culprit.

    If no go, free Microsoft Phone Support for IE8 (see under 'for consumers')

    Free phone support for Internet Explorer 8 is limited to installation,
    set-up and usage only. Advanced issues are not supported. Advanced issues
    include problems that are associated with software and hardware development,
    network connectivity, server-based technologies, and business-critical
    systems.

    end quote

    If you find the solution, post back so that it can help others who have the
    same problem.
