IE Blocks Download of Google Desktop Search

I’m trying to download the new Google Desktop search and got this message from Internet Explorer:

“To help protect your security, Internet Explorer blocked this site from downloading files to your computer. Click here for options.”

I’m sure they aren’t targeting Google specifically. I think I got an update recently from Microsoft that makes me approve any site that tries to download software. I can add them to a list of approved sites.

I just thought this was funny.

What wasn’t funny was getting 2 errors from Google (page not found) when I first clicked on desktop.google.com and then again when I clicked on Download. Backtracking and trying again solved the problem, but I’m not accustomed to getting web server errors from Google.
