Windows 7: Cant Install or download ANYTHING!!!

05 Aug 2013   #11

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit

I have the same problem as Amarti. I try to download something from the internet and the pop-up box will appear but it wont let me save to a file i choose and will let me run but after i click run it will download and then say run again, after i click that the screen disappears and nothing happens. If I save the file ill open it to where it was saved and it wont be there. I have an HP dv6 notebook with windows home premium 32 bit.

I have recently unstalled programs and Im thinkin something could have happened during that process. Everything was fine before that. They were mostly games that I uninstalled. Anyone have any solutions before I wipe my drive. LOL.

Might have something to do with corrupt file associations....
Is it mostly all .exe files you are downloading? If so, make .exe files to the default. See these sites here:

Easy download and install
Using DSL it too 3 hours to download the 64 bit copy from MS's website. The clean install took about 30 minutes. Window install is taking awhile because of capacity issues on my external HD, Accounts and files all moved OK. So far, so good.:D
