    Everytime I go to download something it'll go to 100% and the box will shut
    down (like a normal download) but the program does not get downloaded on my
    computer. It doesn't even let me go through the setup process on any program.

    I bet Vista is saving the files to a different location. Undo the auto
    close on the save download windows so it stays on screen so you can
    confirm whatever you are downloading finishes. Then use Search to find
    where it is getting put if you don't know where you told it to save
    downloads.

    Make sure you download to a folder like Desktop, Documents or Downloads, and
    not an IE temp folder. Run the setup program(s) by double-clicking the icon
    *after* the download is complete.
