What browser are you using to download?

Try loading your browser "without add-ons" and see if it works then (Ad-blockers, etc may be blocking the download).

Could you try another browser and see if the file downloads with that?

Well it's possible the website has a programming error but the most likely cause is some add-on blocking things.

Or if it was IE you were using then check your downloads folder and you may find the file there; IE doesn't ask where you want the save to go, it just puts it in the downloads folder. If this is what happened to your first downloads, you might want to add DOWNLOADS to your libraries list to make it easier to access. There is a little tutorial on how to do that HERE.

I'm glad you got your file(s).

NOTE: Always scan files, downloaded from the internet, with a good anti-virus before opening them.
