Hi again,

Try downloading the program again then save it in another location then
proceed in running/installing it again.

If no luck, add it to the list of low risk files:
Start the Group Policy Editor (Start>Run then type gpedit.msc and press OK).

Go to User Configuration>AdministrativeTemplates>Windows
Components>Attachment Manager then configure "Inclusion list for low file
types" to
Enabled and enter the file types you don't want to be warned about in the
box (for example: .exe, gif, bmp).

Close the Group Policy Editor then try to run again the file application.
If successful and done, you might want to undo the changes you made in the
Group Policy Editor to help protect the system.

If no luck again, try downloading it using another browser (Firefox or
Mozilla). Just make sure that you will download the file from the correct
and trusted source.
