When i go to install somthin on the internet the "save","run" and "cancel" window comes up and it downloads but it dosnt show up where i save it at. If i run the program instead of saving it it downloads but doesnt run. what the matter with my installation? sorry if you dont know what im talkin about becaus eits confusing to me.

hello and welcoem to geekstogo,
you can't find it because your computer alows you to chose where you want to save it. Please tell it to go to the desktop and when you close your window it'll be there. If you need furthur instructions please fell free to ppost back
thanx

ok note down the file name that you are downloading. Once it has completed please go
start->search
and type in the file that you had just downloaded. Please tell me if it comes up on to your computer.
thanx
James

Hi there ddrcloud.

Do you have any firewall that might be blocking this action. I know Zone Alarm can stop certain files from downloading ".Eg .exe". If this is a work computer many companys also use this type of system to stop users from downloading anything but work. It is set that only ".doc , .mdb, ect." can be downloaded.

Let me know. :tazz:
