    Did you check that it's not set to unrestricted? I'm pretty sure that's the default for the policy.

    How did you setup the GPO. Did you link it to the right users/computers OU?

    Run a rsop and see if the policy is getting applied. Make sure that you set "Allow file downloads" to enable and then set the setting nested inside for "Allow file downloads" to disable. If you just set the policy to disabled it won't work. It is kind of tricky like that.
