Take a look in users/download it might be in there. If you gave a folder in
the root of the C drive you don't have permission to do anything there nor
see it.

Hello,

You might check the following locations:

C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Te mporary Internet Files\Low
C:\Users\$user$\appdata\Local\VirtualStore

Where $user$ is your username.

downloaded". The problem is when I look in the suggested locations by Jimmy
Brush there is no folder called appdata in users.

Hello,

The AppData folder is hidden, and it is inside your user folder, not the
users folder.

To get to it, you can type it directly in to the address bar at the top of
the explorer window.

- Click a blank area in the bar at the top - it will turn into a box that
you can type in
- Type: C:\Users\NAME\AppData
(Where NAME is your username)
- Press enter

Ok I understand, I now have the appdata folder in user, it was hidden,
however is till cannot see the files. I have tried "show hidden files" but
they are still not there i have looked in all the locations and have ran
numerous searches.

Do you have any other suggestions? You said in my thread the files were
security-restricted. I have saved them to other locations like documents
pictures etc. and they are still not being displayed. Everytime the download
dialogue box gets to 99% it closes itself and I hear a sound. What could this
be?

Did you look in these folders:

C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Te mporary Internet Files\Low
C:\Users\$user$\appdata\Local\VirtualStore

I believe they should be in these somewhere.

I'm afraid I have no explanation why your downloads wouldn't appear in your
documents/download folder - there should not be a problem downloading to
those folders.

I Checked the following:

> C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Te mporary Internet Files\Low


When I did this I got as far as the Windows folder. I could not proceed as
there is no folder named "Temporary Internet Files" in "Windows"

I then tried this location:

> C:\Users\$user$\appdata\Local\VirtualStore


I got to the "Virtual Store" folder. There were no files in it but there
were 2 more folders, "Windows" and "Program Files"

I'm not sure what the problem could be. Do you know an e-mail address where
I can contact windows about this? If not I will just have to reinstall
Windows Vista.

Thank You for your help!

Try checking inside these folders, as well as any folders inside them. There
shouldn't be that many.

You should also try clicking Start, clicking Computer, and then browsing to
the folder that your files should be in. If there is a button on the toolbar
that says "Show compatability files", your files may be there.

I'm facing the same issue.

Does anyone has a fix for this please reply.

I'm unable to find the file after the download, no matter where do I save it.
May it be My Documents, Downloads, Desktop, etc.

It completes the download and the file dissappears.

And its not only with exe files as I have tried downloading zip, pdf, exe,
rar but of no avail.

File is not even locatable in the search, it simply vanishes.
