Download Manager missing

If so, it is quite possible that the Download History may have got corrupted.

In such a case Open IE and click Ctrl+Shift+Del to open the Delete Browsing History window.

Make sure that you uncheck the Preserve Favorites website data box and check the Download History box. You may if you wish, un-check all other settings.

Next click the Delete button.

Restart Internet Explorer and see if it has helped.

If it doesn’t help try Reset IE Settings.

RIES or ‘Reset Internet Explorer Settings’ restores most IE defaults.

To Reset IE, Open IE > Tools > Internet Options > Advanced tab > Click Reset > Close > OK. Restart IE.
