Strange IE behavior at Straight Dope home page

I’m standing up a new computer at work and when I go to the SD home page, I get the following dialog box, attempting to download a file:

I went ahead and downloaded it but the site still doesn’t come up. The file looks like a binary when I bring it up in Notepad.

Someone just asked this question on the About This Messageboard forum.

I do believe they’ve found a solution too.

Since this has recently been discussed in another forum, I’ll close this thread and direct further comment to the other thread, linked to above.
