I am using windows 7 on my laptop and for some reason certain files such as .exe files will begin to download, proceed to 100% and then disappear. I try to open them from the download list and they do nothing. When I look at my downloads folder they are not there.

Sounds like your security software might be removing them. Without more specific information we can't help. – Ramhound Dec 14 '12 at 10:29

It could be security software removing files. The files could have been downloaded to a different location.

Try the "Save to" option to save under a different folder.
