There was a problem with Microsoft

Close and reopen the Microsoft Download Manager, and then try to download the file again.

If this problem continues, uninstall the Microsoft Download

Hello GARY,

Actually this type of problem comes only because of the error in the file. I mean to say, that there is a problem with your downloaded file. The best solution is that you download it by any other authorized site like Microsoft. The advantage you will get to download from this site is that, it never posses a fake software and also doesn’t give any type of errors in installation.

So my suggestion is that you install it again, by downloading this software from Microsoft site and it will surely work without giving any type of errors.

I guess the problem that you are receiving is caused by some incorrect settings or third party software that may be installed. I have the following two workarounds that I will suggest that you try:

Reset Internet Explorer settings:
You will need to open Internet Explorer, and then click on "Tools" in the menu bar, followed by "Internet Options".
Then you will go to the "Advanced" tab.
Next you will need to refer to the "Reset Internet Explorer Settings" section, and from there you will click "Reset".
And then you will click "Close" when the resetting process is done, and then you will close the Internet Explorer and restart it.

Run IE without Add-ons:
You will just click on Start on your computer, and then choose All Programs from the programs list.
Next click on accessories, followed by System Tools, and then Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
After you have done that visit a website using IE and see how it behaves.
