I'm running Windows 7 and using Internet Explorer. My anti-virus is Microsoft Security Essentials. I am unable to download files. When I try to download a file, it seems to download but then I get a message that the file was deleted because it had a virus. I've disabled my virus protection and I get the same result. I've run a full virus scan. My virus history says it detected and removed a trojan horse virus on Dec. 28th. I've haven't been able to download since then. I've also run Spybot and Malwarebytes. Nothing works. Any suggestions? Thank you very much.

I checked further on my computer. The virus was called TrojanDownloader:Java/OpenConnection.OU.

I solved my problem. I uninstalled Microsoft Security Essentials, then reinstalled it and now I am able to download files with no problems.
