    My browser seems to have an issue accessing things after I download them, it tells me file can not be viewed from here file:///sdcard/download/xxxxxx
    I've tried clearing cache but still no go.

    You don't have it connected to your computer via USB when it does this do you? When it's mounted to a computer the phone can't access the SD card.

    They are a mixture of pdf doc and apk that I KNOW opened before hand, and no it isn't connected to the computer, it downloads into the download folder and can be accessed
    from astro but when I try to access it from notification bar or download menu in the browser I get this error.

    Have you tried the basic stuff; reboot, remove/reinsert the SD (or unmount/mount from settings), safe mode?

    Safe mode will at least give you an idea if its an app that causing the trouble.
