      When you use Microsoft Internet Explorer to download or to open data that is compressed with the GZIP compression method, you may receive an error message that is similar to the following:

      Fail to load Domain Tables

      The data cannot be downloaded or the data is not available to use or to display.

      This problem occurs because of a change that a cumulative security update for Internet Explorer made to the Urlmon.dll file. This change corrected a problem where some compressed files were not parsed correctly over a Security Sockets Layer (SSL) connection while the Do not save encrypted pages to a disk security option in Internet Explorer was selected.
