From your post it sounds like the downloaded program is running. Hmmm.

Try ctrl alt del and open the task manager.....end the running program...

It would help to know which "downloads" you're talking about.

Torrents? Very possible. If it has been downloaded and is now seeding.
So exit out of bittorrent or what ever torrent program you are running.
