Hi Rock,I went to Tweak and downloaded the repair,but it didnt fix my problem.When Im prompted to Run or Save it doesnt matter which one I choose because it cant Run or Open when finished.As I mentioned earlier, when the window with the Run or Save is open,right behind it is the exact same window only its just a shadow.When the file is being downloaded in the bottom tray the rectangle is orangish with the words'file download".I can save it to My Doc,then go there click it and the window comes up do I want to Run or Save..Just an endless cycle.Thanks for your time

Or try downloading Firefox in safemode with networking then boot back into normal mode and see if you are able to download and find your files.

I am glad to here that your issue is fixed.You however will not be able to delete Internet Explorer it is a core component of the windows operating system. You can however do as I have done just delete the Internet Explorer icon from your desktop.No need for it I have been doing just fine for without the use of Internet Explorer for over three years. :)
