Do they download to your downloads folder? If so right clicking them and choosing open containing folder will not do anything. You are already at the source folder. Can you show is what you mean by screenshot?

Which browser are you using? The screenshot Andrew suggested will also go far. A Guy

If you create another account or used another account like you stated and everything works fine;

You most likely have a corrupted user account.

Copy the data over from that user account into a new user account. And then delete the corrupted account.
