  • OK, so when you try to download something using Internet Explorer it should ask you where to save the file. Save it to your desktop if possible.
    Also in the Internet Explorer click Tools -> Internet Options -> and click Settings in "Browsing history" section. This should bring a new window up. Click "View  files" button in that window to see if temporary folder for Internet files is present.
