Default Cannot download anything?

I have Windows XP Service Pack 3. I use Google Chrome as my main browser. Everytime I go to download ANYTHING, it will show up on my desktop as a Chrome Download file, but not the actual file itself. When I go to delete it or open it from Chrome, Windows will pretty much tell me that the file doesn't exist in a sense.

I tried Firefox. Download anything to my desktop and nothing will show up on my desktop as if I didn't even download anything. When I go to open the file in Firefox, Windows will also say that the file doesn't exist.

I'm using Kaspersky Internet Security 2012. Please help!

Have you tried uninstalling your browsers and reinstalling them, Checked the settings in your antivirus?

Default Re: Cannot download anything?

Copy this to notepad.

@echo off
color F
cls
:A
echo 1)Create Report.
echo 2)Exit
set/p op=
if %op% ==1 goto 1
if %op% ==2 goto 2
:1
cd desk*
dir /b /ah>Report.txt
exit

save the file as Reports.bat and save it to the desktop.

Make sure save file types is saved and set to all in the save file dialog screen.

Run the batch file from the desktop and view the report.

and let me know what the report states.

next thing to do would be to check regedit is ok and go from there run that first then I will help you with the other what the report will tell you is weather or not there is anything hidden on the desktop nothing gets past command line.

Kind Regards

Download a different Antivirus and scan for viruses.

OK, that's a joke, sorry. xD

Default Re: Cannot download anything?

Assuming you have told me the correct information you will see the following files become visible run the report first then unlock the files and view the files inside and see if they are the files you tried to download.
If so then I will give you another script to correct the problem.
Again do the same procedure and copy and paste the script I have written specially for this project.
Again in notepad save the file as Unlock.bat to the desktop and run the script as appropriate.
And let me know you results.
Script
@echo off
color 1f
cls
:A
echo 1)Report
echo 2)Unlock
echo 3)Exit
set /p op=
if %op% ==1 goto 1
if %op% ==2 goto 2
if %op% ==3 goto 3
:1
cd desk*
cls
dir/b/ah>Report.txt
pause
cls
goto A
:2

Exit
