Sounds more like a problem with your anti-virus software which is scanning
your web traffic, including downloads through your web browser. Probably
wasn't a problem in previous versions of IE because you were also on a
previous version of Windows (after all, you said "since moving to Windows 7"
which makes that sound recent).
