    Device Setup not downloading files

    So, recently, I bought myself a wired Xbox 360 controller for my PC, and plugged it into the USB.
    Device Setup came up looking like this, and has been frozen in this state for a few hours now.
    Does anyone have a solution for this?
    I'm semi-new to this kind of thing, so if I missed out on a few steps, please let me know.

    Unplug the controller, reboot, after logging back in, open Device Manager, show hidden items, remove the Xbox controller, reboot again. Then go to and download the drivers from there, then install, reboot, and you should be fine.

.exe files not downloading
I recently bought a new laptop with Windows 8 installed. I had no trouble downloading an .exe program file previously, but now nothing happens when I try to run the program. I've run another fix mentioned on this forum, and after rebooting, I get the same results. Any suggestions?
