I would like to know if there are any programs that let me make a quarantine folder or vault, that I can set as my default download folder.
So anything in it cant do anything, and I can scan the *^&% out of it before opening/moving it into the rest of my computer? Hope Iv explained my self well, thank you :)

You can download whatever you wish to anywhere that you wish and it will not be able to do anything until you run it. A quarantine folder is nothing more than a folder that is named quarantine. Many antivirus products contain such a specially named folder so that they know to ignore it during the scanning process.
