I find a game, sometimes Comcast Chill, sometimes BigFish Games. I click on download, the file window opens that shows the little papers flying from one file to another. Suddenly the papers will stop flying and the window closes. Then nothing happens.

When the download window is open, it says it is being saved to TEMP files, but I can't find it anywhere, even if I use <search> to find it. I can find the TEMP files but they are always empty.

I'm using VISTA on a laptop. This is the computer I've always used to do this. I tried emailing both companies tech support but I'm not getting any answers.

Any suggestions?
Either you have changed the security programs that allowed you to download and install the games..or you have disabled the pop-up that asks for the permissions to do so and you are not seeing the permissions to check yes!
