lease show the download location you have specified within either IE or Firefox.
Normally I used Firefox more than IE

Now I just took the snapshot above and pasted into the program IrfanView and saved the .jpg file to the desktop ,,,,I couldn't see the file's icon till I browse to C:\Users\john\Desktop.

Be aware that this problem happened intermittently (i.e some time I can see the saved icon sometimes I can't see it)

Thanks

I just changed my to Desktop and download worked fine, although I do also use DownThemAll with Firefox.

Is your Firefox current?

I would recommend that you try the mozalline (firefox) chaps, although they and google have the worst support of any company.

and the next alternative to use Windows Defender Offline to see if you have malware.

Windows Defender Offline is NOT Windows Defender

Click on the WDO (Windows Defender Offline) link in my signature.
Put WDO on to a USB.
Run a full scan over all drives.
Post back the log files in:
\Windows\Microsoft Antimalware\Support

We also have a tutorial on WDO.Windows Defender Offline

Im having the exact same issue downloads do not show on my desktop until i refresh.
Ran both malewarbytes and the male-ware scanner in Advanced System Care Pro, Windows Defender Offline and also AVG.

I also tried cmd: wmic os get /all /format:list > %userprofile%\desktop\osall.txt. It did place .txt on desktop but it did not appear until i refreshed. Any help would be appreciated ty : )

Rockerman,

Update your SevenForums System Specs
User CP (located on the top menu bar) |
Your Profile | Edit System Spec
(left-hand column)

To gather info, use Speccy (my favorite) or SIW or System Info

ADD the word laptop or desktop or netbook to the
“system manufacturer” block, for example,
Toshiba Satellite L305D notebook.

Provide full windows version info, for example:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 64-bit

Use the “Other Info” block for Optical Reader,
Mouse, touchpad, wifi adapter, speakers, monitor, etc

Scroll down and click on SAVE CHANGES.

for this problem, that will probably suffice.

I recommend using SPECCY which will provide all the info you need and more.

In post #13, log files were requested.

Would you please upload those.

thanks, karl
