Windows 7: 7 saving multiple copies at random...???

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit 7601 Multiprocessor Free Service Pack 1

Hi Ladyluck and Good Morning!
Don't worry too much about the long estimated download time. This often happens and is often caused by a number of people all trying to download a driver at he same time. Just give it another go and it will probably be fine!
I'm inclined to agrre with Golden that your "duplicate" file issue is a Libraries misunderstanding. It is confusing when you set up a new library and then get invited to "Add a folder" That's when you get what shows in your screenshot. Remember that what you see in the Library is not a duplicate copy of the file but a link to the Folder where you saved the file to. So when it looks like a duplicate file it isn't. It is a duplicate link to the same file. Libraries are explained much better than I can here:
Understanding the Libraries Feature in Windows 7 - How-To Geek
Well worth a read when you have time!!
Once you get used to the Libraries their value becomes apparent. IMHO it is one of the best innovations of Win 7.

Multiple Copies of explorer.exe
Hey ya'll. I'm running Windows 7 64 bit. When I got up this morning a program (WinMHR) that scans processes and files for malware, reported 4 copies of explorer.exe as infected. I always thought there should only be one copy of it. I also did a search for explorer.exe in Everything. Here's a ...
