Can't download files with IE 11

Can someone tell me why I cannot download anything using IE 11?  I run Windows 7.  I would also like to know why RealPlayer will not work with IE 11.  I have the latest version (17).  It too will not download any files in IE 11.  I have to revert to Firefox or Chrome to accomplish any downloads.  If you can assist, let me just say upfront, thank you.

I built a new user ID for myself, setting it up with admin rights. It would allow me to download. I then copied over all my documents, desktop, favorites, ect. from my old user to the new one (one area at a time) to make sure I did not lose the download ability. It is still working. Whatever the issue was, it was tied to my user account that I had set up.

Thanks

However, are the computers connected to a domain network?
