    Do you have nod in automatic healing mode? If so it will do it all automatically. If you try it with no automatic healing you should see the pop up and see it at work.
    Give it a whirl and let us know

    Chances are the HTTP scanner has blocked the download of the file and u cannot save it to disk because the Web scanner has already blocked it.
