What site?

It may be down or have relocated and may have nothing to do with you or your
system.

Hi

Is the problem with all downloads or with one specific file? The file could
have been deleted or moved from that site and the links haven't been
updated.

check your hosts file, it might have entries put into it to block those
sites, comment it [them] out by putting a # at the start of the line.

You can file the hosts file here C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

Note: hosts has no extension - open it with a text editor like Notepad.
