When clicking on a download link to download an MSI installation file, an error displays on the download bar at the bottom of the window.

Once the MSI file downloads completely, the error reads " The signature of *.exe is corrupt or invalid. Learn more. "

The only two options are to Delete or View Downloads.

If you enter in your downloads folder, the program successfully downloads regardless of the error.

However, some of our clients do not realize that, and are thrown off by this issue. 
We have confirmed that the issue is caused by IE Update Version 10.0.9 KB2870699.
Uninstalling this update, and switching back to IE version 10.0.6, the issue does not occur.
