    I assumed this was a frequent problem with XP, but I can't find much after performing
    a few Google searches.

    I've got Internet Download Manager (IDM) and FlashGet. About half of my downloads
    are failing to start. Ironically, the failures are occurring with the simplest direct links,
    like these for the XP compatible New Moon browser.

    The big software and cloud storage sites use complex redirects before reaching the actual
    download link. For some reason, IDM and FlashGet have no problems with redirects.

    When a download fails to start with IDM a message box appears. (See attached image.)
    After clicking "yes" this document is loaded into your browser:

    I tried the fix. It doesn't work. Is there anything I can try that might resolve this problem?
    I'm reluctant to try different download managers, but I will if that's the only possible solution.

    The obvious question is, how did you resolve this problem? Have you found download
    managers that work with XP?

    I use DownthemAll! 3.0.8 in New Moon/XP. That same link you posted that IDM had problems with downloaded easily using DTA.
