Tay, a couple of things come to mind. First & foremost is automatic updates ( FWIW, mine're off...). M$, in it's wisdom, likes to reset your security settings (in IE, security tab) to 'high'.
Not always, but often enough to make it worth checking. Anything higher than 'medium' blocks downloads.
Next is to make sure you're using the right critter to open software.
Again, M$ often changes associations to utilize their stuff. IE opens most (but not all) things. Take a look at 'what opens what' @: http://filext.com/ and be sure you're using the right thing.
