Can't save downloads

I am problems saving downloaded files in windows 7.

The files show as having been downloaded (both in Firefox and IE) but when I look in the destination folder - nothing.

Even searching for the downloaded file shows nothing.

I've tried saving to the Desktop, Dowload folder, newly created folders and directly to a USB stick - same issue.

No warning windows come up and I can copy and paste files between all directories.

Am I missing some permissions somewhere?

A second (maybe related problem) is that attached files in Windows Live emails can't be opened for editing with Word.

Any pointers would be appreciated.

  1. I have the same problem. Even a system restore did not solve the issue. I'm about to reinstall the system.
