Before downloading and installing an update I am asked to ""Run" or "Save". What do I need to choose and where can I save it?

I guess that you are new to computers. When you select RUN, the setup is downloaded and is launched... SAVE option allows you to save the software SETUP... You can SAVE anywhere you want to... I prefer the SAVE option because it allows you to RUN the setup in future without downloading...

Easiest way if you're just doing an update is to run it. If you want to, you can save it - normally it should automatically be saved in your Downloads folder.

If you select "Run", the update will be automatically downloaded and installed. If you select "Save", the browser will simply download the update and you will be able to install it anytime you want. Personally, I select "Run" because the installing process will be launched automatically and I will save space on my hard disk. If you want to save the update, you can save it on your desktop, in your Downloads directory or in any place you want.
