    I previously was using Window XP Home, till last week when I had an electrical problem
    and my computer died.

    Just got a new computer (Lap Top by Asus) with Windows 7 Home and trying to download from download.com the following: ccleaner, open office, malwarebytes. and M.S. Security Essentials (all free version) When I hit the download button on all of them I get a box that comes up with this is a Binery File, why is this happening and how do I get rid of it and be able to d/l normally like I use to in Win XP or do I have some sort of setting set up wrong.


    Please advise as what to do,as this is getting very frustrating


    Thanks

    My guess is it's the User Account Settings.

    Go to Start > Control Panel > User Accounts.

    Choose change User Account Control Settings and move the slider to the middle position or choose Never Notify if you are an advanced user and have good anti-virus protection, spyware remover and any firewall you may have.
