Q: Please help - Downloaded files are corrupted

Hi!
Whenever i download a file such as .msi installer, .exe executable, or .zip archive with IE and run it, it crashes (not IE but the file that was downloaded.) This recently started happening on my Home Premium 64-bit Vista installation, and the problem remains after reinstalling Vista two times from scratch. If the file was downloaded on another PC and saved to a flash drive, it runs fine on Vista. I have tried the sfc /scannow command, as well as disabling any firewall, antivirus, etc. and changing the IE settings. This occurs on a clean installation of Windows Vista also. Here is the crash report, for example this time I was trying to install the FireFox installer after downloading it with IE:

help with this issue would be GREATLY appreciated as it has been plaguing me for months!

A: Please help - Downloaded files are corrupted

I know and understand the problems you're having as I too have had the same issues. I'm running vista business 64bit connected via wifi to a belkin router, and when I download files (zip,rar,exe etc) they would all be corrupt. However I noticed this problem would come out of the blue and then vanish without explanation. After trying countless things to resolve the issue I made what I think may be a discovery:

Last night in an attempt to resolve the issue I disconected from my own home network and connected to my neightbours instead, and all of a sudden the problem was gone. When I reconnected to my own network the problem returned.

Now for the strange part, I have a vista 32bit laptop which is connected directly to the same belkin router via ethernet cable and it never has experienced this problem, however if I have something downloading directly onto the laptop, then at the same time start downloading something on my 64bit vista workstation via wifi, the problem disappears. In other words if my 64bit downloads without using my full 8mb bandwidth the problem goes away. So now I am getting past the problem by forcing my vista 64bit workstation to download alot slower than my bandwidth allows.

I have no earthly idea why this is happening, but in my case at least it would appear that the problem is localised to the network, or router or modem. As I stated when I connect to my neighbours 2mb wifi network the problem 100% stops!

If anyone can shed any further light on this isssue I would be grateful.

One further observation, when I download via web browser (mainly Firefox) I notice that the downloads begin at 2% or 3 % not 0%, and the downloaded file is always corrupt. When I connect to my neighbours network the download begins as normal at 0% and the file works fine. I suspect this maybe important.

From time to time, my CPU rises to 100% and pretty much lags me out from doing anything.

- I have all the latest drivers installed.

- sometimes, the CPU is fine, and when im done downloading a song or a .zip file, the files end up being corrupted or the song ends up skipping because it wasnt downloaded correctly.

- videos on youtube tend to load very slowly at times, and its not just from the server ive tested the same videos with my laptop and all runs smooth.

I was wondering is this because of my Video card or possibly my Power supply ? im not to sure whats causing the problem. And I dont see any certain program pop out as being overworked. Firefox is being used the most at around 50% and Ive only got Winamp/ZA Firewall and Firefox open with all this lag still.

- All of my drivers are currently updated from Windows update

Heres my system specs, any recommendations or probable upgrades I should do to my Pc/ Or help is greatly appreciated

CPU: Intel Pent 4 3.06GHZ, 3065 Mhz, 1 Core (2 Logical processors)
Memory: 2 GIGS of DDR2 RAM
VIDEO: Geforce 9500 GT
Power Supply: 300 Watts
I remember before installing Windows 7, windows 7 advisor said theres probably going to be problems running Windows Aero with my Graphics card.

A:100% CPU / Downloaded files corrupted /

No, your graphics card should be working perfectly well with Aero. I highly doubt it has anything to do with power supply.

I'm beta testing ZoneAlarm Extreme myself and have found it to be excellent. They just put a new version which you might want to get and install. You can upgrade without removing the old one.

Here is a link to that: https://www.zonealarm.com/security/e...A-60day-1user#

But what you should really do is use the backup feature found within ZoneAlarm so it saves to your documents folder.

Then completely uninstall ZoneAlarm from your system. You can restore your settings from the backup easily when you want to reinstall.

Point is, get that off your system and then tell us how things are.

We have similar CPU and you use all the same apps as me. Nice.

Another recomendation, although it's unlikely will fix anything, is to visit NVidia's site and install the driver for your graphics card from there. WU drivers...well....are WU drivers...even though they are from the manufacturer too.

Here is the graphics driver you should be using: http://www.nvidia.com/object/win7_wi...1.07_whql.html

And very good luck to you!

I have this problem that most every file I download gets corrupted. From music files off iTunes to .exe files, they all get corrupted. I don't know if this is stemming from the same problem, but whenever I try watching Youtube videos, the red streaming bar will continue to fill up the bar as if the entire movie has finished downloading, but the video stops dead in the middle as if I reached the end of the video. It's probably not my internet connection, because when I tried connecting my laptop to the same Ethernet cable as my desktop, my laptop doesn't experience this problem. I've tried cleaning my registry which didn't help as well. It could be malware, but unfortunately, I can't update Adaware or AVG as the update files aren't immune from this problem. My computer specs are below, and any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Hi I could use some help, Every time I download something from Internet Explorer for like 2 MB or more it turns out to be either corrupted or unfunctional after download.
At first when I download a file the browser scans it and tells me its unsafe and wont open even though I know it isnt because I have used it many times before on my previous computers, but I tried downloading the same file again and it said it was unsafe BUT I was able to run it either way, after downloading that file it seems to bug up at Install in some point, I have no idea what is causing this so I turned my Laptop back to Factory mode but im still having this problem, Tried to turn it back to Factory mode again, still nothing.

Hello, recently my computer has experienced incredibly reduced download speeds, to the point where it reached a low of about 300 bytes. My average download speed is between 2-3 megabytes. Also, when attempting to download anything from Google, upon opening the file i get an error message stating the file is corrupt, or the file simply doesn't download at all. I've ran multiple PC scans and cleanings to no avail.

Hello,

Am having a real headache with the recent Windows IE7 security patch KB928090. When trying to install it, the laptop gets a memory error (tries to locate a unavailable memory address); then this totally locks everything up (requires shutting it down with the on/off button). I am trying to find and remove the downloaded patch (as the Update Manager sees this and thinks of it as ready to install). I want to remove it and try to download it again. Does anyone have any idea when the darn thing is located while it is waiting to be installed. Have had no luck searching the web, microsoft or serching the HD myself.

System is a 6 month old Dell Inspiron 9400 Intel T7400 dual processor, Windows XP Pro, 2 GB memory, 120 GB HD. It doesn't perform as well as expected but it's OK. Have had no problems with it until now.

So. . . where the heck are the downloaded Windows Updates stored on the HD before they are installed? Any ideas? Help would be greatly appreciated. Or maybe I should ask if it is even possible to remove a downloaded patch before it is installed?
Thanks!
 

A:Solved: How to remove corrupted downloaded IE7 security patch

By poking around without much help from Microsoft Support I found if I used the Microsoft Update website instead of Windows Update, I was able to actually re-download over the corrupted one and install the security patch. It installed fine. I tried this also with the Windows Update website and it would only try to install the corrupted patch already downloaded to my HD. This seems a little weird but at least the problem is rectified.

Hello all,

My copy of Windows 7 Home Premium x64 on my laptop has been having some strange issues lately. I cannot run .msi files, and device manager never populates a full list. Sometimes (rarely, but it does repeat) Windows Explorer will freeze, and if I attempt to close it and reopen it using task manager, the UI reloads, but whenever I click on a folder it claims Windows cannot load explorer. Restarting fixes that. I scheduled and ran CHKDSK, and it repaired a few bad sectors, but it didn't fix any of these problems. I have run CCleaner (both the regular cleaner and registry fixer) and defragmented my hard drive until it's only 1% fragmented. I then tried sfc /scannow, and it read a bunch of corrupted files but could not repair them. I read that to fix sfc, you must download and run Windows System Update Readiness Tool. It has been running and "Searching for Updates on this Computer" for about an hour now, and I'm getting concerned that it's just not doing anything. It's not frozen, the bar keeps moving from left to right and I can click on and off of it. I also have the logs from sfc if anyone wants to take a look at them, they'll be attached. The computer isn't very old, and has an intel i3 and 4gb of ram. If you would like any extra information to help, please reply and I'll get back to you as fast as I can Any recommendations on where to go from here would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much for any and all help!

Hello,
 
For a while now I've been having problems with downloaded files on my computer. There are various problems:
- general: when downloading a file on my computer, it downloads the file fine. The problems starts when executing the file.
Most of the times I get to read an UAC warning that the file I try to execute is from an unknown publicer (which is not the case for many files I execute (cross checked this with a friends computer where the UAC shows the proper publicer)
Sometimes when I execute the file to try install a program I get an error reading the file has been corrupted. This problem continues to excist with new downloads. It has been the case for example for: java; emsisoft anti-malware. However when I download the exact same file from my friends computer and put it on my computer through USB the problems aren't occuring and everything installs fine.
- steam: has problems maintaining a download; every 100-200mb the download stops and tells me the game needs an update. I hit the update button and 100-200mb later the same happens
 
 
I don't know how long this problem has been going on. I started noticing it with steam and didn't think much of it. The problem listed with steam sometimes occurs when the servers are busy. My estimated guess is that the problems has been happening for about a month.

Today, I noticed an error message shown with a triangle next to the clock on my screen saying "aolload.exe - Corrupt File." I ignored this, and later got this message for various other programs. I finally decided to try running chkdsk through the command prompt, and then I got a "Corrupt File" message for this program.

If you have access to a Windows XP CD, boot from the disk and choose the option to use Recovery Console by pressing R
Choose your windows installation (if more than one listed)
Enter your Administrator account password. This is not necessarily the same password you use to login. If you do not know the password for this account, try pressing ENTER (i.e. Use a blank password)

Run CHKDSK from the command prompt.

Hello, Please help me. I have Windows 2000 Professional. I'm pretty new to all this as I have only had a computer for about a week. I got some adware threats detected by Norton Antivirus 2004 and have done a lot of reading up and I am now tring to delete them.

One of the removal instructions provided by Norton promps me to delete a file in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files but when I go to view this folder it looks like there are no files inside. Now, I know there are files in there as Norton Antivirus has picked up one in there and when I view the proporties for that folder it states there are 12 files inside but when I view the folder with Windows Explorer it appears empty!

I've gone into folder option and changed the settings so it shows hidden files and hidden system files yet this still doesn't let me view the files in this folder. How can I delete this file if I am unable to view it?

If anyone can point me to a turorial that explains this or explain it to me I would really appreciate this.

Please help a n00b.

Cheers, Luke.
 

A:Unable to view files in C:\Winnt\Downloaded Program Files

I'm assuming you have done this to Show hidden files and folders:
Go to Control Panel/Folder Options/View and select "Show hidden files and folders"

Also,place a check in "Display the contents of system folders"
And,uncheck "Hide protected operating system files(Recommended)"

If the above doesn't work try this:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced.
Create the REG_DWORD ShowSuperHidden (if it doesn't already exist) Set the value to 1, click OK, and close the Registry editor

Hi tonedef -

Welcome to the Tech Support Forum - Vista Support!

What version of Office are you trying to install (e.g, 2003 or 2007)?

Have you changed any file permission settings or "Taken Ownership" of any folders/files?

The "scan disk" that you mentioned running... was it "sfc /scannow"? If not, click on START | type cmd.exe in the Start Search box | right-click on cmd.exe | select Run as Admin

In the screen that comes up type the following:

sfc /scannow (space after sfc) - press ENTER

Let this run. Try Office re-install.

Good Luck. . .

I have tried running scan disc and it doesn't work and have tried from the command window and it stops 73% through and say can't go any further to maintain system integrity. I have also tried restoring from a back-up but it wont let me as well.

Any suggestions?

Hello guys,

I have had this problem for quite a time now. Everytime I try to download a file it is corrupt.

For instance, I tried downloading a movie clip off rapidshare and although its only 3 files and 300MB, it always came as CRC error check failed. I tried downloading it from multiple servers of rapidshare but had no success. I also tried downloading other files yet I am having no success downloading anything.

Finally I decided to reformat my computer and I still got the same issue. So then I read in a forum that this might be caused by my hard drive. Therefore I went out and bought a new hard drive and installed Windows XP Professional and I still have the same problem.

I have updated ALL motherboard, video, audio and additional utility drivers. I am also updated Windows XP till date. I also read on this forum about ComboFix and tried troubleshooting it. Here is my Combofix log:

I have OS XP(3), IE8, Office 2010

I am trying to d/l a pptx file from our organizational website (that I use regularly). The file is shown as a pptx file (as displayed by the properties feature), but when I click to d/l it, it shows up as a zip file to be opened and the computer tries to unzip it, but doesn't do a very good job in doing so.

I have tried to d/l other pptx files from other internet sites and they work (d/l) OK.

I have the same OS on another laptop and it d/ls this particular file from this particular site just fine.

I can change (rename) the extension on this file (from zip to pptx) and it works fine

I have tried everything reccomended on various PPT forums and it hasn't worked.

The file association is Microsoft PowerPoint.

The file d/ls perfectly with Firefox.

What is it about the configuration of XP/IE8 that lets this happen?

The issue here is that this particular file has been posted to the website for members of our organization to d/l and use. Many of these members are not savvy enough to be able to 'manipulate' the file and use it as it was designed. I am tryng to make this d/l as user friendly as is possible.

When I download files using ie the download window indicates the files are downloaded but they are not there. I've been able to see the files being deleted instantaneously after being downloaded. Thanks
 

A:downloaded files not there

Does this problem only occur in Internet Explorer, or do you have another browser that works correctly?

Have you tried doing a System Restore to fix the problem?

If you can, post a HijackThis scanlog:

Download and install HijackThis using the "self extractor". Run it and select "do a system scan and save the log file". Then copy/paste the contents of the log to a reply

I just did a clean install of Win 8 Release Preview, 64 bit. I moved my profile from C: (SSD) to d: (HDD) using a recommendation I found in the forum. I did not move the program data. I wanted to download and install some programs, but when I do, I can't get them to run. They are setup .exe programs. In IE if I click to open, nothing happens. I clicked on View Downloads in IE and it opens a Window with the downloads and if I try to open one a list is shown that asks how do you want to open this file and a list of programs like IE, Notepad, Paint, etc.

I've pre-ordered Win 8 to install when it is shipped.

Recently - I've been having a strange problem. when I download a photo or image, or even capture a screen shot and save it to a folder, I cannot see it in that folder. I originally thought i had not hit save properly or not saved a file that I thought I had - but when i tried to re download an image or capture it again and name it the same thing - I got a message saying there was already a file by that name in the folder.

I have tried ensuring all hidden files are shown, and refreshed the window to no avail. but when i restart the computer, I am able to see the files in the folder as the should have been displayed all along. also confusing - when i look in the folder after saving...say if I've saved 12 images into the folder from the net or screen capture, but the folder is only displaying 1 image - it was say the folder only contains one image...

how can i fix this so i do not need to reboot every time i want to see newly created images?

Hello, I have an HP laptop running Vista Home Premium 64-bit. It's actually been relatively fine for me until the last few days. I was having some problems editing video files and couldn't figure out why, so I updated to service pack 2. Around the same time, although I honestly cannot be sure that it was because of the update, none of my downloads will work. I believe it happened once or twice before I updated my sp but now I can't download ANYTHING. It's bizarre. The entire file will download and the file will show download progress just like normal. But, once complete the file shows up as 0 kb and doesn't open. I've tried using firefox 3.5.3 and IE 8...both do the same thing. I have also checked my permissions and made sure that I am allowed access to all of the folders that the documents are saved in. Nothing seems to help.

I really don't want to have to format/reinstall windows since I have quite a bit of stuff I would need to backup. Any help would be EXTREMELY appreciated. Thanks.

I just downgraded from Vista SP2 to Vista SP1 and by doing so, have somehow screwed up my downloads in both Firefox and IE8. Whenever I download in either one, the download results in a file that is 0 kb.

The strange thing is, Google Chrome somehow wasn't affected by this downgrade (if that's what caused this) and I can download files fine in that browser.

Can someone tell me what's going on here and how to fix this in IE8 and FF 3.5? I've already tried reinstalling FF and it didn't help at all.

This is a new problem that has cropped up. Whenever I download a file to my computer, I am unable to open it up to run or install it. I have the problem with .zip files, .PDF files, .exe files, etc. I see the download occurring, and it all seems to be going fine, but when it is done, it is not on my desktop where I have my files saved, and when I right-click on the file in the Download box (where it shows the status of the download), the option to open the file is faded and won't work. What could have happened to my settings to make this happen? Does it mean I have a virus? I have AVG virus protection and it is up to date.

I have a second computer (laptop) that is running Windows 7. I have no problem saving files to that computer, so I can copy them to my Flash drive and move them to the desktop computer, but I'm sunk when I try to get a program like Adobe Acrobat Reader that downloads and installs in one operation.....

Hello, first post here, quite a beginner with computers, and I'm danish so sorry if my description might be a bit unclear ^^;

Less then a week ago I got a message, with a countdown, that say that new installations was almost finished, and that the computer needed to be restarted to finish the installations. Then I was given the choice to restart now, or wait.

After having restarted, I got a message saying that a .dll file had been misplaced, and another .dll file could not be installed correctly, also it said that I should get a new .dll file.
I don't remember the whole thing, but both files had windows32.exe in the name. And this message appeared every time I started the computer

Then I used the system-recreating option under the maintenance part in the control panel. And then the message stopped appearing.

But then, today, I got the same message as first descriped, and it all started again.
Now I have recreated the system again, but unsure of what to do next.
I have read about the windows32.exe files. but it seems as the whole thing cannot download.

I've got microsoft windows XP 2002, and AVG Free edition, also Norton Internet Security, but is is deactivated and I have never used it.

I've googled for threads on this, but no fixes. I have seen some threads on this forum regarding this as well, one where the blame is mainly put on AVG Antivirus (even though one poster reports it happening on a machine with "NO Firewall, NO AV, NO UAC, Reset IE7 OR Newly installed Firefox (downloaded via another PC), One original User ADMIN account all running in Genuine Vista Ulitmate X86, SP1 and fully updated"), and another in which using Chrome is proposed.

What I'd really like to know is why my files disappear upon download completion.

It happens in Internet Explorer, Firefox and Safari, but for some reason not in Chrome. I'm not switching to Chrome, so it's quite annoying having to switch between browsers to download a file. -And I guess I'm quite thankful I had Chrome installed before this happened.

I don't run a firewall other than my router's own, I have Avast Antivirus Home installed, and I've had it for several years without any problems. Disabling it doesn't change anything. I've done a full virus scan with no result, but I've never had virus issues anyway. UAC is turned off. Download location has no effect on the issue.

WHAT is going on? Anybody?

My laptop suddenly has a problem. When I try to download from internet explorer or firefox I cannot complete installation. It starts downloading as normal but after clicking run the download window disappear and does not start any installation. I tried to download a new antivirus but I cannot, so now I have not got one because my old one does not start, I dont know why. And when I go to installation program
it fail to unistall it.
I did system restore because the volume icon and connection icon disappeared from the taskbar. They are back again now but I have this new problem I cannot download anything.
I dont know what I have to do. I am scanning the computer for viruses now again, because a week ago I got a pop up message from my old avg antivirus saying that there was a trojan horse backdoor generic 12. I manage to delete it I guess but I am not sure. Because when I go to my computer and click on windows and then click on download program I can see that Activex downloader say is damaged together with another file which I do not know what it is.

Anyone know where XP, "media player8 in particular" downloads streaming, audio video etc... files to when you download? I thought it would be a generic .tmp file, but not so. To protect content I suppose. In the olden days, (Win98) it was easy to find them... I've looked high and low, even searched the registry.

All of a sudden I cant open any downloaded files. It shows that it downloads but then just disappears. I have even tried saving the file and it wont save. I cant figure out what is wrong. I have read some different blogs that say it could be windows defender which I do have on my computer but I am scared to remove it because I cant afford for my computer to start messing up, I start online classes on Monday! UGH...please help.

A:Can't open any downloaded files

What browser are you using? Try a different browser like Firefox. Also you can change the download location to a different directory or folder. Have tried to download the same program again? It should list the previous download location so you know where it went. Or you can do a Search for the name of the downloaded file

I work ( well actually volunteer )  in a school with 60 plus fully updated windows
7 machines - all have IE9 and Word Starter. Recently, we made the move to Active
Directory. Word Started worked for about a month after and then the system admins made
a change to the OU with the outcome being that WS now fails to function. Their
answer to this is that WS is not really an enterprise level product and should
not have been working at all and to remove it completely. I hesitate to do this
since I cannot reinstall it as it is an OEM product. I have moved everyone over
to Open Office ( this was installed as a backup on the image ) to fix that
emergency. Now, when teachers go to web sites that serve up .doc files, upon
download with IE9 ( ironically this does not happen in FireFox ), the file extension
actually changes to a .wiz file. Luckily, Open Office will open these but, I
have to reset the default program to open this file type every few reboots. I?m
needing to know what settings in AD might have been change or need to be
changed back to restore Word Starter functionality.
Thanks for any help.

A:IE9 changing all downloaded .doc files to .wiz

 
Hi,

I suggest to go to
tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab, click "Reset advanced settings" for
test.
Also try to change another download location for test. And in Windows Explorer, do not show the extensions for files.
If the issue persists, you can try to reinstall IE9, or temporary return to IE8 to check if the same issue occurs.
Hope that helps.

Hey guys,

When I try to download a file from the Internet, I get a box sasying "Run/Open", "Save", and "Cancel" as always. When I click on either of the first two options, however, the box simply clicks and unclicks with no actions following it. Almost as if you click "Post" in a forum, but you hold the click on it and move the cursor elsewhere, stopping the system from performing that action. On some days, I can get my system to download about 5 files before I can no longer click "Save" or "Open".

Any ideas?

I downloaded Norton Internet Security from the Net. Tried to install it but ran into a problem so I want to do an XP Home System Restore to a date earlier than the download. Doing so will lose all the recent downloaded Internet files so I need to find the NIS download file and burn it to CD before doing the restore. The desktop icon properties show the path but Windows Explorer only shows four temporary Internet folders, I think it creates new ones for each session, and I cannot find earlier ones. I've tried "show hidden files" but without success and have run a search in Explorer as well.

Any suggestions on how I can find older downloaded Internet files?

A:Where does IE6 put the downloaded program files?

Where the download is saved depends on your browser settings and whether you selected a folder at the time.
If you can remember the name of the downloaded file (or part of it) you can do a search for that file. If you cannot remember go back to the download site and follow the links to download and at some stage the filename will be visible.

Hi bassfisher6522,

I had this problem a while back. It was being caused by a third party AV program (CA Security). You can fix the file extension by renaming the file with the correct ext. (Example-.exe). Should work fine.

I tried to get to the new thread under dvd burning but couldnt find "new thread" - This is my 1st time here so please forgive me. How does one get a downloaded file into dvdshrink so it can be processed for burning? I have dvdsanta but trying to get the best use out of dvdshrink and dvddecrypter also. Thanks and thanks for your understanding.

A:downloaded files and dvdshrink

ok new thread is usaully under the thread chart .it's a gray button .

well first of alll u need to turn the downloaded file in dvd form.For movies, avi is only one single file. i use winavi.to turn avi movies into dvd form. after u've turned the avi movie into dvd form.go to dvd shrink, but i doubt the file will be over 4.7 gb. so this is mostly done with dvd movies.that are over 4.7 gb in size so that u are able to fit it on a dvd blank disk.

for dvd shrink to work u must open dvdshrink then press open files on the top menu . then select files then once that opens u press analysis. then after that's done edit what u want i usually get rid of the french language waste of space. then press back up and then whaa laaa . once that's done burn the files onto a disk using nero or any other burning program .

dvd decrypter works similar u open the movie in a drive then decrtypt it. then if the movie is still way to big then use dvd shrink
i usually only have to use dvd shrink though because dvd shrink has a bulit in decrypter .so it's an all in one process with dvd shrink .unless the file. is really protected then use dvd decrypter. have a nice day and good luck .

I run Firefox 3.0.3 under Windows XP SP2 Home.
I have downloaded, a new batch of .jpg files from a trustworthy site that I have been using without any problem for a couple of years. With the latest batch of files I find that whenever I try to open any one with PaintShop Pro, I get an Open File - Security Warning asking me if I really want to open it from an unknown publisher.

If I check the file's properties, I find it is blocked. I can unblock each file individually, either by changing the property or by checking an option on the Security Warning.

I can see no reason for this happening suddenly. I have found various possible solutions proposed (but for slightly different environments or file-types), but they do not work for me. Is there any really proven solution for either preventing the blocking in the first place or removing the block en bloc?

Interesting problem. I should think if you downloaded files to the desktop, and used Windows Explorer to view the desktop, then you should see the files. Why not create a folder in your Libraries called "Downloads" and configure Firefox to download files to that folder (Firefox options, options, general tab). See what happens then. Curious.

Hi, and thanks in advance for your help.

First, please note that this download problem does not seem to be browser-related. It happened both in Firefox and IE.

When I receive an attachment in an email and click to download it on FF, a FF download window opens up and I see the "progress" of the download happening. This is all normal. But when I click to open in (or try to right click to open off a menu) --- nothing happens. If I click save instead of open --- nothing saved where I've sent it.

Same as above if I click to download a PDF or exe file from a website. (With one strange exception: if I click on a link that instead of opening a pdf file directly, opens a new tab which then, with no further action from me, somehow "opens" a pdf, either in the tab, OR as a stand alone pdf --- appearing in the tray of open programs under the Adobe icon at the bottom of my screen --- which I then can save!)

On IE, the only difference is that once the dialogue box appears asking whether I'd like to save or open, and i click on one or the other, the dialogue box closes, but nothing has been opened or saved.

I run AVG anti-virus (free version), which is up to date, and reports no problems. I run a scan using their PC Analyser, which found some registry errors ---- which i could fix using their PC Tune-up..... except I can't open the download of its exe file!

I am having problems opening downloaded files from my email only. I don't know why. I use Windows Vista, Firefox and the email server provided at my university.

Basically what happens is this (I've included screen shots where helpful):

I get an email with an attachment and I click download to download it.

Then a window pops up saying that it has no idea what type of file this is but will save it anyway.

I look on my desktop where the file has been saved, and the icon is just a blank sheet of paper.

I double click the icon to open the file and it tells me that it doesn't know what file type this is, so I have to choose a program to open it. I choose the file type that I know this particular file is (in this instance, a spreadsheet file) and it fails to open.

Now, it fails to open for several reasons. Sometimes I'm told it's corrupted, sometimes it's the wrong file type, sometimes it needs to be converted, sometimes it's being used by another program. None of this is ever true. If we go back to the first picture, it's CLEARLY a spreadsheet file and should open in spreadsheet, no? So then why doesn't it do this?!

This happens with Word files all the time for me. I have probably 3 different versions of Word on my computer and all of them fail to open Word files downloaded from my email.

So, what's going on? Is this a problem with Vista, Firefox, or my email server? And how can I fix this?

You cannot have slahes in a file name. Also, the file extension = .sheet

I downloaded a file and when I tried to install it, it said it was unable to download because files may be corrupted.

Since it was never installed on the computer, does it mean that I don't have the file anymore?

And if it is still on the computer, how do I find it and how do I get rid of it?
 

A:What happens to downloaded files that are not installed?

A file downloaded stays on the computer until you delete it. How do you find it? Look in the folder you downloaded it to. Depending on where or why the install failed, it may have left files in various places on your computer. Trying to find them to delete them could be very cumbersome and not always necessary.

I have a Downloaded Program File entry, that has "unknown status", no creation date, and it says "none" under Last Accessed.

It does claim to be 4kb's in size.

This program file has no name, but instead, is a grouping of numbers and letters, all enclosed in parenthese..{}.

Highlighting it, and right clicking it only brings up the properties of the entry.

It cannot be deleted either from the keyboard, or from the menu...File>delete..Edit>cut.

The properties of this entry show it to be an Active X control, (with no creation date, no access date and no status. It does not appear to be damaged...it does not say that there are any damaged files associated with it).

I dont feel comfortable giving you the codebase http address, because Im not sure if it turns into a link that anyone can access. But I will tell you that it includes the words; fpdownload, macromedia, polarbear, ultrashim.cab

Using my search bar to go to that location brings me to a folder, with an apparent program that has yet to be installed.

Hello,

Let me explain my problem, maybe it has to do with my windows xp or whatever.

When I download from a certain site a pdf file, that file is saved in my computer as an udeletable file. A nod32 scan of the file returns a number of either 2 or three files scanned while I only scan one! Malwarebytes detects only 1 file and both detect as clean.

It happens with both Mozilla Firefox and Internet Explorer!

If I save the file under a different name after opening it with Acrobat 8.1 the file becomes "normal" i.e. deletable

If I copy paste to another computer the file behaves again normally. Downloading from the same site on other computers of my network I have no problem whatsoever

Hello, my name is Ryan and I'm having a problem with added UFO extencions to my downloaded files. I've recently put an email on a microsoft community support site, so here it is...

After downloading a specific type of file from online,
I am unable to access it in any way. This seems to happen
with files that are saved as the .UFO type. For example,
I've recently tried downloading AOL instant messenger,
which saved as Install_AIM.exe.ufo, but after double
clicking on the file, and trying to explore its contents I
am unable to open it in any way. Many other files I've
downloaded also cannot be opened. I have a windows XP home
edition, and I have netscape 7.0 as an internet provider.
Any help would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello Ryan,

It appears that some application is adding the .ufo extencion to your
downloaded files. This may be due to using some type of download manager or
even possibly some other 3rd party application running in the background,
you might want to check the settings in Netscape to see if the cause might
be with the browser. You might want to try the download using Internet
Explorer, if this is successfull then you might want to contact Netscape
support for assistance. Your example of the AOL (Install_AIM.exe.ufo)
download you might try to remove the .ufo from the file name and then
double-click the file to see it it will run.

Thank You

Well this a new one, yesterday I was downloading a movie, via Utorrent as I have done so many times before. As I do with all my films, I saved them in the directory downloads / Tv shows and films / films / movie title. As I expected, the torrent downloaded fine without any issues and I was about to get ready to watch the film when I noticed something odd. The folder containing TV shows had completely disappeared. Additionally, I then checked the films folder, to notice all but 4 films (Including the one being downloaded) had also disappeared. I've spent the past hour researching, running malware scans (found nothing), losing the files doesn't bother me, at most, its an inconvenience. What's concerning me is how this could have happened, as mentioned above, I have ran multiple scans and found no evidence that the torrent could have been infected. I've looked on a google for several hours and found very few cases of something like this happening. If anyone could shed any light on this situation or has experienced anything like it before, your assistance would great. Again apologies if this is not in the right place.

(edit - I should point out, when I say disappeared, I mean complete gone from my system. I have checked the recycle bin, tried searching the names of movies and so on. I only have to look at my partitioned drive to see the additional 150GB of space that it now has.)

Coincidentally, about 2 hours before this happened, I thought to myself I should really purchase I... Read more

A:Downloaded Files Disappeared

Hey JJLyon-

Have you tried doing a search for the actual files themselves? You might want to have a look at the Everything program, which is a good search utility to have around anyhow.

Also, you might take a quick look in the OneDrive folder in case they were Auto-saved. See HERE.

Edit:
I just noticed that you already did try a search, so I guess disregard that part of this post.

I just downloaded some business cards template from H-P. They downloaded, but go into a win-zip format and I can't open them. (The site says it wil download into word. This has happened to me twice. If I try to un-zip they go to pictures in my Photo Suite softwaare.) I dohave ZipMagic on my Windows ME machine.
 

A:downloaded files go to winzip

Welcome to TSG myodie. I'm going to put your topic in the Business Applications forum since it evidently involves Word.

But do let us know what the file extension is on the files you are trying to download (you can also try right clicking on the link and selecting "save target as" to specify a download directory if possible). Try to supply a link to the files you are having problems with so others can check them out.

I downloaded an electronics design program but I can't open the tex. files. When I go to 'find online' I get another reg fix download site. I don't need another reg fix program. What do I do to open a tex. file? I'm using windows OS Home XP with service pac 3 I know this is probably a dumb question, but my screen name says it all. Please have mercy. Thanks

A:can't open downloaded files

Are you sure that they are tex.files? Maybe txt. files?

What program and the URL for it would help us.

Hi all,

I'm new to the forum and despite having tried lots of suggestions and followed tutorials posted on this site, I cannot unzip downloaded files - these being simple documents or spreadsheets. The zipped folder is displayed and I can choose settings to extract all files but once i browse to the extracted folder it is empty. There are no error messages. I see in my file associations that .zip is not there but have already used the tutorials to restore and re-associate the zip files with the built in utility. The only associations are for .zfsendtotarget and .zipenx. A month or so ago, I got so annoyed with this I installed Winzip but this didn't work either!

I'm using Windows Home Premium and IE8, if that's any help. I do hope someone can help me as I'm getting incredibly frustrated... Thanks

A:Can't unzip downloaded files

You said that you already read up on the subject, so it would be less than worthwhile to give another document, but maybe this may help

Any exe file I download or copy from other p/c will not run.
I get a message saying file not found , pls. use your "file find" option.
All exe files having "install or setup options" will work properly.
I got this problem after a partial software re-installation.
Thanks for helping

A:Downloaded *.exe files will not be found!

Have you tried a system restore to a date previous to this partial software re-installation?

What software were you trying to install when it failed?
