Pls Help - When I download a file from....

  HULIO2002 16:08 12 Mar 2006

the internet it does the usual save as and I choose where. The download commences but when it finishes the dialogue box closes (even though i have not ticked the box)and nothing happens. I cannot find the files in the place where i saved them. This only happens in Internet explorer but is ok in Mozilla Firefox. I am running XP Home.

Any suggestions?

Does this click here help?

Search my hard drive?

If you are referring to woodchip's suggestion the answer is yes, search your HD.

suggested and all that it finds is IE in c:\i386 (Not .inf).

I looked at the link you suggested phono but that seems to refer to zip files. My problem is with all kind of files.

I am going to try a search on Microsoft

Try the suggestion that MS recommend, even if it does only apply to ZIP files.

Not sure what to do. It's funny how Mozilla works but not IE.

It should be in i386 folder
