    Did you right-click to download the link? Depending on your browser, just clicking it might cause the browser to try to display the file as opposed to downloading it.

    Hmmm. You're on a PC? Could it be anti-virus software?

    Could you download curl and run it in a command line?

    The command would be something like:
    Code:
    curl http://the_complete_link_to_the_file.
    
    Edit: or, could you post the link? Maybe I could zip it up for you.
