Hey I've been trying to download the new 314.22 drivers from Nvidia's website (I also tried EVGAs website) and every time it finishes the file just vanishes. I assume this is because of some security feature built into the browser (Which I do not know how disable).

Does anybody know a way around this?? :S

I not heard of a feature with firefox deleting downloaded files, you could try downloading with another browser and see if it works. If it does then try re installing firefox.

I figured it out...

in the browser type "about:config"
Search for Scan
then change the value of "browser.download.manager.Scanwhendone" to false

If that fixed your problem good but you might what to check a little further because the file from Nvidia is not infected and Firefox should not have deleted it so you have something else going on. I just re downloaded it from Nvidia without turning off the Firefox virus scan plus I have MSE installed and had no problems at all.

I think it was just a false positive, Kaspersky couldn't detect anything.
