Why can't I get downloads e.g. Adobe reader 10 with FF Beta4.8 using XP home sp3 and NIS11 when the file downloads and then auto-deletes before I can use it?

Posted

The downloads folder does not save files when they are downloaded. problem particularlly with binary files e.g. adobe reader 10

 NIS has been deactivated and problem persists.

Initially downloads are canceled. When retry option is selected file downloads in window but sub directory shows file while downloading and then it is deleted
