EDGE and IE browsers now saving all download files as txt… (We Have The Fix)

As u Know Microsoft Edge and Internet Explorer are having an issu that al download files wil be markt as .txt

For example, a download file “*.exe” becomes “*_exe”, replacing the “.” with a “_” so that the file doesn’t have an extension.



Over the internet everybody is talking about restoring Edge or Removing Edge and IE and reinstall it again, or locating and finding the counters2.dat to counters2.dat_old but what if u dont have a counters2.dat to rename, well dont worry well we took a dive in the deep and found the solution. downlode the counters2.dat file under the green download button

Download Button


now extract the counters2.dat file from the Zip file and copy past it to


file location





After that, Reboot you’r system. u would be able to download files agian.


We strongly recommend to open the Command Prompt as administrator (CMD)

and run  SFC /Scannow
