So you're on IE, and downloading Firefox doesn't work for you?

I would suggest you disable your firewall.  If that doesn't help, I'll move the
product to as that's the proper place for it.

What is your setup?  Do you have a firewall, and what is it?  What's your ISP
(you're using a hotmail account), maybe they have a proxy.  Are you using
Google's Web accelerator, or any web accelerator for that matter?

i i said, the file does download, it just will not open upon 
completion. I usually do not have problems downloading.

Try a different mirror, it is possible that one of the mirrors has a bad file
(which is a bad thing and shouldn't happen, but is possible).  If need be, I can
mirror a known good version, with the SHA and MD5 hash files for it available,
so you can confirm it is identical to the file I know is working.  I am apt to
think it is something in your setup that is broken, but try a different mirror.
 To get a different mirror, just hit the download link again, it goes through a
round robin type download spooler, so you are unlikely to have the same mirror
the second time around.
