For the Downloads folder do you have these under Group or usernames:

Authenticated Users - has full control
SYSTEM - has full control
Administrators ({PC name\administrators) - full control
{user name} ({PC name\user name}) -full control

I have all four groups (nothing more) and they all have full control. I tried for the hell of it install Firefox (downloaded from another PC) and tried downloading. It worked fine. IE seems to be corrupted or something?

ok this is weird... I think we are getting someplace. I used internet explorer to download the file above and got the couldn't be downloaded message. i used Firefox, and opened up the downloads folder. there were two files. i cleared them out and tried again using internet explorer, and still got the same error but it downloaded to the downloads folder. I sent it to the desktop, and right mouse clicked the file. the option to run as administrator is not there.
