Empty out your %temp% folder.

Sure it isn't your anti-virus program detecting a virus in the download
file and preventing you from accessing it?

Which link on what page has the file you are trying to download?

i have tried to download from various sites in order to test a new broadband
connection. i can download from microsoft windows update, so it appears that
the connection is working properly. i have tried to download the latest
version of Soulseek and a few screensavers from liverpool f.c. without any
success. this is when the message appears.

Oh boy. So, when was the last time you ran a full scan using a recently
updated anti-virus program, and scanned for malware/spyware using
Ad-Aware, Spybot, CWshredder, MS AntiSpyware, etc?
