Remove (disable) all Add-ons in IE (Tools, Manage Add-ons). Then do a complete reset of IE. Tools, Internet Options, Advanced, Reset. Click on the box that says "delete personal settings".

When done, restart and test IE downloads again.

If that is not the fix, provide a screenshot.
You say the download finishes but then you cannot find it.  Have you looked in your Download folder?
I see you are having other problems in another thread.
I know it seems early on but a Repair Install might give you the answer sooner rather than later.

This should not affect your personal data or installed programs, but a backup is always a good idea.
