issues opening downloaded programs RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello! I am hoping someone can help me ASAP. I am running windows Vista, and I have been trying to figure out how to resolve this, but everything has failed. After factory restore on my PC (it was used), i installed all updates on the PC, except Java, which had to be done via internet. i attempted to do so. Failed. The download shows it is downloading, then shows up in downloaded files. HOWEVER, i cannot open said files, and they do not show up in my system ANYWHERE. i have no idea what is going on as even other downloads wont open. i even tried doing the microsoft FIXIT, and it wont allow that to be downloaded either. so i ran a system check via the command prompt suggestion i found and it found corrupted files that the system itself could not fix. when i went to try and prompt it to see the log for more information, it said it could not open it. ("cannot open 'c:/cbs.log'") What is going on with my computer and how do i fix it?????

  • Locate the software download on the internet,instead of installing,R.click on the download,select "save as"

    save to desktop,or other folder,once thru,locate download & open.Also,check youre firewall settings,exception

    tab,allow youre web browser,set others as needed.Also,open internet options,edit all tabs,in advanced tab,locate the "set to advanced settings",make sure youre security settings are at default also...
