Cannot Download Software After Installing Win 7 on MacBookPro

#1
I had to re-install and update the 64 bit Windows7. Everything went beautifully including the install of Office 2010 and Quicken 2010 and the Apple drivers. The problem occurred when I tried to download financial information from web sites. There is nothing executable in the Windows Explorer or Downloads folder after I click download.

This happened within Quicken and also trying to download Adobe PDF. I thought the error was due to the financial statement requiring Adobe PDF but when I download that it also disappears.
I've done search on all files and cannot find any downloads. I uninstalled AVG anti virus and disabled Windows Defender.

Advice please?

Whic folder have you defined in IE for storing downloads?

I was using Firefox 11.0. I tried IE and it took it just fine by default. Thx. Not sure what is the problem with Firefox download but I am going to try and figure it out. Quicken download also works on IE but not Firefox. Thanks for the reply.

I assume you've set the default download folder in the Firefox options?
