"application/octet-stream" ???
« on: April 21, 2010, 02:05:24 PM »
My installation of Avast (Free) interferes with viewing/hearing web media such as on YouTube.  After clicking successfully (most of the time, but not always) subsequent downloads get a prompt that I am downloading an "application/octet-stream".  I have no idea what that is but it definitely isn't what I want, nor what I experienced before installing Avast.  The only solution I've found is to temporarily disable Avast.  Is there something else I can do?  I've got the most recent installation of Avast.  I generally use Firefox, but the same thing happens with IE.
