      it just disappears like it was doing before.  I tried saving it like i did the others as one would normally.   I tried having it open in another application.   I tried saving it into a zipped file.  None of it worked.

      Are you using IE?

      Re-register MsiExec
      • Go to Start > Run
      • Type or Copy and Paste the following:
        • MSIEXEC /UNREGISTER then hit enter.
      • Then again Start > Run
      • Now type or Copy and Paste the following:
        • MSIEXEC /REGSERVER then hit enter.
        .
        No visible change will take place. Try to install/uninstall again.

            I'm confused.

            What is happening when you try to download?

                let me see if I can explain it better than I did on the post before last.  If I try to donwload from sites that the link is not directly to the file I want, but to another site holding the file,   for example:
                (http://chii.modthesims2.com/getfile.php?file=842106)

                but if I find a site that the download link is a direct .zip or .rar file (like stove.zip)
                then I can open and save it by using winzip new file and pasting the direct web link into it.   

                so I searched for the MoveIt til I found a site I could get it in the zip form direct from the web page.  I wasn't cursing LOL  the site is "BleepingCompute"

                Yea I'm familiar with BleepingComputer.

                This is an issue I've never seen before so I'm not sure how to attack it.

                I put these two files into a zip file so you can get to and download them easily (hopefully). Just unzip them and run as described in the instructions.

                http://www.filedropper.com/repairpermissions

                1)
                * Download and run fixacl.exe

                * It only takes a second and then move on to FixPolicies.

                2)
                * Double click on FixPolicies.exe to run it.
                * Click on Install. It will create a folder named FixPolicies on your desktop.
                * Open the FixPolicies folder.
                * Double click on Fix_policies.cmd to run it. A Command Prompt will open and close quickly. This is normal.
                * Reboot your computer after it runs
                * This fix may prove temporary. Active malware may revert these changes at your next startup. You can safely run the tool again.

                * Note: Some malware will block the running of this tool. So if you cannot run Fixpolicies, then, rename the exe file to something like fixtool.exe and then run it.

                You might need to restart the computer and then see if you can download normally.

                  Can't get them because the link doesn't point to a zip I can copy and paste into my winzip.  The computer just won;t save it
