Which error message are you getting?

this is not a "real" folder. Or it is but Windows Explorer isn't showing you everything that's in there. This folder typically contains ActiveX controls
try using Robocopy or even a straight file copy from a command line window.

When I tried to see in that folder, even if hidden folders option was enabled, I could not see any folder. I blindly put below command.

F:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>copy "C:\windows\Downloaded Program Files\*.*" "C:\Test\"

It worked.

Did you by any chance forget to put quotes around "C:\Windows\Downloaded Program Files\*.*" or any other path containing spaces?

Traverse through Command Prompt to "Downloaded Program Files" folder. You can view all the files in that particulat folder using command.
Copy those files which you need to any specific location of your interest. Hope this should work :)

Hi there,

You need to register file :
regsvr32 C:\winnt\system32\occache.dll to see the content of this folder.
