a.) Your computer is brand new. You pulled it out of the box, only days ago and you turned it on and went to Internet Explorer 9 with Windows 7 or 8, and tried to download the program!

This is Internet Explorer 9 with Windows 7 or 8, showing who's boss! This problem will not persist once you get to know your computer! Try turning off your computer and then going back to it later, and then, try to download the files.

b.) Your virus protection program/software is set to high in its protective state, causing you not to be able to download programs, such as zip files, R.A.R. files, Exe files, audio files, etc. Try toning it down a notch!

c.) You use another browser to download. We only reccommend Internet Explorer! Not any other browser! Try It You'll Like It!

d.) You miss read the boxes when they appeard on your screen, such as in, our image examples 4 & 5, check them out! This happens all of the time! If you are reading quickly through the boxes, take time out to notice, that the boxes say, 'This Program Might Be Harmful or Could Be Harmful To Your Computer!'
