thanks for your swift response - all downloads go to desktop as they have always done - I have not changed any settings

I am assuming from this that you have sucessfully downloaded software before?
If so what was the last thing you did before these problems began?

Welcome to Mac-Forums, percyjimbob64.

And on top of answering MDDG's questions, could you tell us a bit about your OS version (for example, 10.4.6, not Mac OS X Tiger as there are many versions in Tiger) and about your Mac, i.e. which Mac model is it, how much RAM, etc?

Which software downloads are giving you trouble? OS updates? Any download at all?
