Everytime I visit amazon.com, it downloads a file called download to my PC. I don't understand what's up with that.
Any suggestions or ideas as to what may be going on?
I use Windows 7 Home Premium and I use the Chrome browser.

I'd have to venture that it's a tracking cookie of some sort. Try going into the cookie settings of chrome & regulate amazon by disallowing the site to place cookies. See if that stops it (at least you may get a pop-up next time saying amazon wants to place a cookie- then you'll know).

Open Chrome>go to the tool icon, upper-right>settings (scroll down)>show advanced settings>privacy>content settings>cookies/manage exceptions button>hostname pattern: type www.amazon.com>behaviour: choose "block". Click ok.
Try that & see how it goes? There are other exceptions you can make for different things, as you'll see when you enter the advanced area.
Let us know how it goes?
