Google what you are trying to install. Just becareful, there is lots of malware and viruses out there attached to "free" downloads.

If it is a Microsoft product, google the update and select the link that is their website and download it. Dont download a Microsoft product from a middle man, your asking for trouble.

assuming windows 7, doubleclick on the little folder icon on the bottom of the screen and there should be a downloads folder there. doubleclick on it and you should find your downloads. thats the default. if someone changed the default, it could be anywhere but if you know the filename you can search for it.
