    When I receive some downloads, after downloading, and trying to access the page, I receive this messge.

    "The path '2006\.' does not exist or is not a directory." What is the problem? And how can I fix it?

    Thanks, Mary:)

    OK. Now, when you double click on the downloaded file, it doesn't execute? What are you downloading?

    Try redirecting files that you download, to new empty folder on your desktop, then u can go directly to the folder, and make an assesment as to why you cannot open, could be various reasons, file type your pc wont open, or corrupt files
