Dwhelper from what I can discover is a Mozilla app somewhere in Firefox.
However it is always d/L'ing to a directory tree that I need to remove, and every time I delete the folder it is resurrected the next time I download something. I need to change Dwhelpers default folder to my Downloads folder.

When I download most of my stuff it goes there, but some items seem to want to go to the Dwhelper folder in that unwanted directory.

Any idea how to do this?

A mind is a terrible thing to waste. Mine has wandered off and I'm out looking for it.

That seemed to work, thanks.

When I originally did an Explorer search of "Dwhelper" the results came back as it belonging to a Firefox directory, but I could not find it there.
Never related "Dwhelper" to Downloadhelper. "DLhelper" would have made more sense.

Or you could just make an Alias of the DWhelper folder, and put it where you want it.... =D> :D =D>

Or you could pay attention to the date of when this thread was made (in 2011).
