Windows 7: Downloads Not Working

Downloads Not Working

I am using the RC Windows 7 and am having issues with downloads. Let's say I try to download a program like Firefox or Zone Alarm, or anything...I save it to my download folder and it downloads because I see the download box.

The problem is, once downloaded, the download box just disappears AND the file is nowhere on the computer. I sometimes get a message to allow access when I try to download something and I say yes but it's not working.

Any ideas?

Thanks for the reply, I finally figured it out. When I uninstalled AVG Antivirus everything worked so it must have been a setting in that program. I will re-install and check it out.
