    If you are using firefox i have found that sometimes you need to right click on the download link and click open in new tab and then it will download. I dont know exactly why it wont download but that is the fix i have put together.

    Try what i am saying and see if it works for you. If it doesnt then change your location for saving files to. Maybe there is a problem with the folder you are saving in.

    Yeah!!!
    I finally solve the problem. I'm using an anti virus software called stop-sign antivirus, after I uninstalled it, everything work fine now!!! If anyone have same problem i had, maybe you can try switch a antivirus software.
    iroken22, thanks for your help too.
