    You don't download from a disk. You copy from a disk. What antivirus
    are you using? Some AVs intercept downloads to a quarantine directory,
    then copy the files to the destination directory after a clean scan. If the
    lights on your modem are blinking during download, the file is being
    downloaded onto your PC. It's just a matter of, "where?" Have you
    done a file search for a downloaded file for which you know the filename?

    Just thought of something else. When you download, does the IE
    download window show the download progress, speed, etc., then
    indicate when done? If so, it is downloading properly, but to an
    unknown location on your drive.

    As a rule, I do not have problems with either here. I use
    logical drives setup on the physical drive, but you do not
    need to do that. Set FF to download to a separate folder you
    create. Download all files to that folder.

    I am not a geek in any way or form. but I do know that I have spent hours
    trying to download. I have vista. The download gets about 50% and then quits.
    I click on the security bar at the top to allow the download and disable
    popups. Please tell me an EASY way to solve this. Thanks

    Install Firefox 3.0 and see how downloads go with that.

    Just this morning I decided to do a total reset of IE settings to see
    if it would fix a problem I've been having with a particular website.

    Didn't fix the problem, but it DID kill my ability to download
    anything: the download window would close and the file was nowhere to
    be found. NOWHERE. Firefox worked fine.

    I played for HOURS - and searched the web intensively for a solution -
    until I finally decided to do a system restore to get downloading back
    in IE. I really would have preferred to find the fix, but gave up.

    Many have found that their A/V program is the culprit. It wasn't on
    mine. Nor was it Defender or anything else I could think of.

    Again, try Firefox. That's the only consistent "fix" I've found that
    covers all situations in my own case.

    Sometimes when I have download problems I either
    1. Change to a differnet browser such as Firefox
    or 2. Use a free program Download Accelerater Plus which also neatly stores
    all my downloads and speeds them up. Which also has a resume function so I
    don't have to do the whole download again if something goes wrong.

    I was facing same problem. This is due to vista and avg(expired) combination.I have fixed it with FF, for IE still need to fix.

    You have to type in "about:config" in the address bar then click the i'll be safe or something button, then type in "browser.download.manager.scanWhenDone" in the filter bar near the top one option should show up that says true under the value double click it and it should then say false and also all the text should go bold.

    this was all i had to do to make it work and all files where downloading fine after. hope this helps someone.
