Please try to download again. Usually it works after a couple of attempts or you can try a download manager like Netants.
The best solution for download problems is a download manager. You can get a free download manager from Netants. After you install it and reboot then just move your mouse over the actual download link (the zip file) and then right click your mouse and select "Download by NetAnts".
Turn off your firewall. ZoneAlarm will block the download. Change your firewall settings or turn off the firewall until after the download.
Receiving an error while downloading? A common problem is that the download fails. The most common cause of this is that the temporary internet files folder on the downloading machine has become full. Try deleting the Temporary Internet Files folder by selecting Tools/Internet Options within Internet Explorer and then push the Delete Files button in the Temporary Internet Files section. Please try downloading again.

Internet Service Providers (ISP) experience busy times and the service degrades. Please try the download again at a different time of day.
America Online Users (AOL) may experience problems. The solution is to start your AOL connection and then open Internet Explorer or Netscape or Mozilla or Opera or another browser and then use that browser to perform the download.
A connection cannot be established or you cannot start the download.
The IP address (the Internet address of your computer) may not resolve to a host name (to other computers, it may look like a string of numbers instead of words), or your host name may not resolve back to your IP address. The security protections on some servers may prevent you from making a connection unless your address resolves correctly. Most Internet Service Providers (ISPs) ensure that their customers' addresses resolve, but some ISPs may not perform this task. Check with your ISP to find out whether your address resolves correctly. If it does not, and if your ISP cannot fix this problem for you, you may need to use a different Internet connection or a download manager to download software.
Spyware in your browser. You may have spyware embedded within your browser. This is known to cause problems for Internet Explorer. You may no longer be able to perform any downloads once your browser becomes corrupted. Re-install Internet Explorer Q318378 and run either AdAware or SpyBot to determine potential Spyware problems. NOTE: Ensure that you backup your registry before running either AdAware or SpyBot.
Invalid Archive Message:
Check the size of the file you downloaded. It should match that shown in brackets. If the byte count does not match then the download was not completed successfully and you will have to download again.
You may have to check with your ISP (Internet Service Provider) if difficulty persists. Download problems may also arise from bandwidth restrictions of your ISP's routing systems. When their routers become overloaded they begin losing data packets in their routers. In some cases data packets due to their routing paths may arrive out of sequence and fool your browser into thinking that the file transfer is complete or that was an error during transmission.
Try to click to download again immediately. If, after several attempts, this does not work then try downloading at another time when net traffic through your internet service provider is lower. Change Internet providers - as a last resort only. Check with your ISP as to why they are having this high data loss. Some networks within large companies may have filters or problems with binary files.
