Hey Monidean,
I always save my downloads.This way you can browse for what drive and directory/folder you wish to put them in,or create a new folder for them.
Not only this,but then you can also choose where to install them.
Hope this helps!
Good luck,
Mike

hiee monidean6,

u might wish to try out this method. go to your control panel - folder options.
once the folder options menu opens,
go to file type tab - select the file extension which actually automatically go to your temp folder.
once u select it, click on the advanced button and tick confirm open after download.

hope this help..:)

I'm trying to do that, too, since I'm having the same problem as monidean6. I'm doing great, up until I get to this part: "select the file extension which actually automatically go to your temp folder." because there are two folders. The first one listed is named "File Folder" and the other is named "Folder". I don't know which one to choose to continue with your method, so please let me know which one I need to modify to correct the problem that monidean6 was having. Thanks in advance.
