IE and Downloads.

I have suddenly lost the ability to save downloads with IE.
It will go through the usual procedure asking where to save downloads,seemingly downloading except it is not there.
Doing a search on my PC does not find it either.
Have just reluctantly upgraded IE to 8,thinking that would sort it,but no it didn't.
It also happens with Fierfox but not Opera.
Strange,I did install Spybot yesterday,don't know if its related.

She is learning faster than I thought.GREAT.
