Unable to download or run any file.

Specs: Windows XP
I am using a Sony Vaio,with Mcafee as antivirus.
Whenever I try to download a file, be it .exe or .rar aranything, it shows 100% complete but then it just vanishes from the computer. Even if I try to run an exe directly from website, it save it correctly in temp folder but then it just vanishes and no trace of the siftware can be found in my computer. I was not able to download mcafee as well then their support somehow remotedly sent the file and executed in my computer. Any idea where shall I look into? I am feelinglike handicapped with this:(
this problem occuirs only when i try to download from websites. Happens both with IE and Firefox.

Not a complete fix but right click the links and use the save. Save it to a folder you created, I use downloads as folder name.

See it that works. Dunno how to fix the original issue.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10
