I installed MS ISA 2004 on my network for testing before I go production with it and I configured the policies of the http web filter to block downloadable files such as .exe .zip .rar …….etc….etc and when I test it worked like a dream up until I tried to test the download on a VBulletin forum and it did download from it.
My question is how can I block the downloads from forums????

Notice that the MIME type does indicate that a zip file is being downloaded, but the file extension is not included in the request, so you need to block the MIME type in addition to the file extension using Content Groups.
