Is there a reason why you want to keep using IE8?

edit: IE remembers/stores the last directory that was selected for a download.
open a Command Prompt window and copy/paste this...
REG QUERY "HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer" /v "Download Directory"
...and then press enter.

Your folder/directory will be different since you mentioned that the download folder is empty... unless you have something removing each downloaded file.

Excellent point by Sir UNI!

You should go for IE11.

As Nuttawet is using IE8 in Win 7, something seems "wrong with Windows Updates" imho.

Nuttawet, can you post screen prints of your Windows Update windows for:
1 - Windows Update (updates available)
2 - Windows Update > Change settings
3 - Windows Update > View update history

Here is how to post screen prints in Seven Forums:
Screenshots and Files - Upload and Post in Seven Forums

Here is one way to get to Windows Update:
Open Control Panel
Click Windows Update

Here are examples of the screen prints I'm asking for:
