Windows 7: Recurring problem with dowloading anything in Windows 7

Recurring problem with dowloading anything in Windows 7

When I first bought my W7 machine, I had no problems downloading. Right-click, save as, and it worked. But all of a sudden, in both IE and Firefox, it won't download anything. The save window won't even appear in IE, and the downloads window in FF will appear, but under the file, it just says "Starting" It will say that for HOURS if I don't cancel. I did a system restore before and it fixed the problem, but the second time it didn't. Nothing beyond typical updates have been installed.

Welcome to the Seven Forums.

What antivirus program do you use? Maybe it updated and changed something.
