Cant Download To Desktop

Hi There,

Ive got a Dell Studio 1745 laptop running Windows 7 home premium 64 bit. 4gb ram, t4300 processor.

Recently Ive been having an issue where I will download a file and save it to the desktop, but when I go to the desktop to open up the file, its not there. I can find the file then by the search feature and look at the file properties and weirdly it says its located on the desktop(??) but its just not showing up there. Im not sure how to fix this or if its a virus perhaps or spyware even though Im running decent antivirus/spyware software.

What happens if you download the file to a different folder - like C:\Downloads or just C:\
