Downloaded files delete as soon as it completes

I have Windows7 32bit OS. For last few days I have been facing a very strange problem as follows:

My downloaded files get deleted as soon as the download reaches 100%. I have tried downloading with different web browser like IE, FF, Chrome, Safari, but problem persists in every browser.

I would appreciate any help in this regard. Thanks.

Welcome Sanju0011 to the windows 7 forum.

Have you checked your Anti-Virus as most check downloads and verify that the downloads are not infected

Also, what level of security are you running, you might not have the permissions to write to the download directory.

Also, what are you trying to download?? is it the same file? Have you tried other files?

Also, you might want to fill in your System Spec's
