Missing Downloads
I have read lots of messages that ultimately say the same thing....files
downloaded are gone. I have only found one instance and it was a link instead
of the file. I have tried changing the suffix to something obscure and
nothing. I have set up "d:\downloads" and directed everything there. Nothing.

I have done a complete search of my c:\ drive. I have searched inside
\users, all folders. I have searched Internet Temp directories. I have
searched the c:\temp drive I set up and found nothing.

I have been using, installing, configuring, etc since windows 3.0. Finding
files is not a hard thing, in any system, until now. I noticed there is some
new program that is supposed to speed up my thumb drive, so I have to wonder
if that is the problem. In any case, I end up having to download files on my
laptop, and then transfer it using the network onto the Vista desktop.

Other than Mozilla, or Firefox, or whatever, is there a simpler step that I
am missing, or is this another bug?

I had this with beta RC1. Since I installed the RTM version it only happened
once, after I installed AVG anti virus. Uninstalled AVG and my downloads
have been OK.

Problem is, I am not running AVG.

Something else I have noticed. Whatever this problem is, it is blocking all
downloads through IE7. I have been looking around to see if there is anything
related to this and so far nothing.
