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

    Where $user$ is your username.

    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

  6. 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$\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary Internet Files\Low
    C:\Users\$user$\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.

  8. I Checked the following:

    > C:\Users\$user$\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Windows\Temporary 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.

    I have the same problem.
    Search provides the shortcut with a target to the folder and the file name,
    but the file is not there.

    Microsoft wants to charge me $60 to tell me how to fix their software issue
    on this somewhat unstable operating system.

    Does anyone @ Microsoft read these or know how to resolve this issue?

    Hi,
    I had exactly the same problem and no one could help. I was using IE8
    at the time and all I did was to change browser. I now use Google's
    Chrome. You can watch the download progress, run it and install it. It
    also saves the file in your default directory, which when you visit,
    there it is.

    I worked for me. I hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Stevieboy
