Re: downloaded files disappear...actually never appear

The problem is AVG.
Note that AVG is NOT compatible with VISTA.
AVG is programmed for WINDOWS XP.

Meaning, some scripts in AVG may interrupt VISTA making downloads
unable to work smoothly.

I'd advise you to go with another ANTIVIRUS program, such as Norton
which is compatible with VISTA, but it DOES cost money.
