I was having technical difficulties due to my snooping around with settings I had no business snooping around with, so I contacted someone online (a computer savvy friend) who asked me to install team-viewer to initiate remote assistance so he could see what the problem was, this is where I first noticed I wasn't able to download files. After numerous attempt, I was still unable, no matter what, to download Team-Viewer Now since this mishap, I have been unable to download any files. I tried a few different files, from different websites, including Skype, Team-Viewer, Google Earth, and more...
This is what happens, I'll click the download link, a dialog box appears that gives me the option to "save file" or "cancel". I click save file, and that's it. Nothing happens.
Usually, a second box would open where I would select the destination for the saved file but this box doesn't appear. Like I said, I've tried this with Skype, Teamviewer, and Google Earth, same result every time. I click save file, and that's it.
Can anyone help me out please?
I NEED to be able to install Skype ASAP since I use it for college and work!

I had this posted in another topic and I was told my best bet would be to post it here...

Hello, this is not a malware infection! Please do the following. Go to your browser, and go to the google chrome download page. This will launch a downloader and installer for google chrome, without the annoying, save and nothing happens thing your having. It's automated. And should work!
