In your other post, you said you were clicking the "Run" choice and in
this one you are clicking the "Save" button. Here's what you said in
I justr attempted to download firefox and the same thing happens, the
file seems to download fine but when i go to the folder to retrieve it
it isnt there. I also made sure to save it to the desktop and that didnt
To be honest i wonder if it is even saving to my computer. When i select
the run option it goes through the motions as if its downloading but the
same thing happens, nothing after downloading.
I tried right-clicking a picture to see if i could save that and that
worked but thats it.
I think the fact that you are able to save to those directories when you
right-click and "Save As" is significant. This indicates to me that
there are no ownership and/or permission problems with the directories.
So here are a few more questions since I can't see your machine:
1. Was your MCE install completely virus/malware-free?
2. Do you have any add-ons in IE7? There is a menu item "manage add-ons"
where you can check.
3. When you upgraded, did you first run the Vista Upgrade Advisor? Were
any problems reported? If so, what were they and what did you do about them?
4. Did you log off and then log into the second user account and try
downloading? I can't tell from your last 2 posts whether you did this or
not. If you did, were the results the same?
5. When you upgraded, did the upgrade appear to go smoothly. Have you
had any other seemingly unrelated problems since?
6. Go to a friend's house (or work) and download Firefox from their
computer. Save the installer to a usb thumbdrive or burn to cd. Take it
back to your house and install Firefox. Now try to download something to
the Desktop. What happens?
