I have just got a new laptop. New to vista so have been trying to download various things like 4od, firefox, etc. When the download screen appears if I press save it disappears never to be seen again while if I press run it will download then disappear.

Usually on XP it would just run automatically. What am I doing wrong? Vista is doing my head in!

Left click the START button, bottom right(on the task bar)
Then left click where you see your name/account name
This will open up a new window, and your downloaded files will be in the 'downloads' folder :thumbsup:

They just didn't save anywhere on my harddrive. Definately appeared to download but didn't save. As I said restart did the trick
