Cannot download anything

This afternoon I have found that I cannot download anything to my PC.
I have tried saving to the hard drive but after it finishes there is nothing in the location that I have tried to save to.
I have also tried using Neodownload manager and nothing happens then either.

Any ideas anybody?

I suppose the file is not marked read only?

Nope,

have tried numerous files. Even stuff that I have downloaded before and they dont work today.

I had this problem, came to the conclusion it was the registry but couln't find the subject. I was advised to download firefox/mozilla, I didn't just carried on trying. In the end I did d/load them and lo and behold I can do all my updates, new drivers, games patches, so thats what I would advise that.

Also, if I uncheck the box saying 'Close this box when download finishes' it closes anyway

Been looking on other sites for advice too, found someone else who had same problem until they removed Windows defender.
So I removed Windows defender too, problem solved.

So I wonder why it works with firefox.
