IE 7 and standard links

Hi All

A friend has told me that links that worked fine in IE 6 on a PC are now not
working in IE 7.  The only thing they can see is that these links have the
following common traits:

a) long file names, ie about 30 plus chars

b) underscores in the filenames.

c) They are derived from the old asp routine to force a pdf download rather
than open them up in the browser window.

I'm desperately trying to borrow a PC to install IE 7 (I don't want to
affect my own PC in anyway at the moment) to test this, but has anybody else
come across the same problems?

This error makes sense when viewed alongside changes made to the way IE6
handled addresse sin various security updates.
e.g. stopping username:password@domain type links from working because you
could have
Preventing long addresses would prevent

Search the archives on this group. You will find that this was discussed
(by me, in fact) a couple of times in the recent past. You can install
IE 7 in such a way so that you can run it independently of IE 6, on the
same machine.
