Downloads not working

by Insanity8 / February 25, 2010 3:19 PM PST

I'm working with a laptop on vista home basic edition. I am not able to download anything to the computer. It says it is downloading however during the download and when it finishes it there is no file to be found. Any ideas appreciated.

Downloading Problem

You need to select where the download will go. It was probably set at a default location such as Documents. I never really noted where mine went, as I always re-set the location to the DESKTOP, as I can see it there. If you want to save it, you can move it to wherever you want.

Yeah - Assuming I'm a COMPLETE IDIOT.
Sorry that does NOT solve the problem.

Who said to you that you are a complete idiot?

Are you the same person who posted originally way back in February 2010?

If not, perhaps you would like to re-post with your own discussion and give full details?

Locking this one.
