You have to change your headers to force them to download for IE as well 
as for other browsers.  You will need to do more with header() to do so:

    function &generateForceDownloadHeaders($fullFilePath = '') {        
    // STATIC VOID METHOD
        $file = ($this->fullFilePath) ? $this->fullFilePath : $fullFilePath;
        if (is_file($file)) {
         $filesize = @filesize($file);
         header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="' . 
substr($file, strrpos($file, '/') + 1, strlen($file)) . '"');
         header("Content-Length: $filesize");
         header('Content-Type: application/octet-stream');
         header('Content-Transfer-Encoding: binary');
         header('Pragma: no-cache');
         header('Expires: 0');
         @readfile($file);
         @set_time_limit(600);
        }
    }
