    SP2 breaks a lot of older/shady/grey-market/freeware/non-compliant software.
    Newer, SP2-compatible versions are popping up all over the place.
    I would say that your download manager is now broken...
    You must refer to Micro$haft documentation to review the newly implemented security settings in SP2.
    Remember: you asked for it :)
    Good luck

    I think it's your cookies or Windows Firewall. Try disabling the Windows Firewall (It's unnecessary unless you like to piss hackers off) AND lowering your security settings in Tools > Options
