Default downloaded files "disappearing"

whenever I download a file, I can see it in the directory I'm saving to while it's downloading, but the second it's done, it literally disappears from the directory as if it deleted itself automatically. I do a search on the filename and it doesn't come up anywhere in the computer, as if it never existed, but then if I try to download it again to the same directory, I get the "file already exists" window.

likewise, when I create a new folder, as soon as I type in the name and press return, it disappears. but then if I try to make another one with the same name, it says "folder with that name already exists".

Maybe your folder options are hiding the files.

that didn't help at all.

I just realized something strange though, and I don't know if this is just a coincidence or if it's actually related. all of the downloaded files and folders that are disappearing have the word "sound" in the names. any folder I've tried to create that doesn't have the word "sound" in it is fine. I know that seems weird but I just thought I'd mention it anyway.
