    Everytime I try to download something to the C drive it says I do not have permission.  This happens when I try to download a disk also.
    Thanks in advance.

    Is it your computer? Post exact message. What browser, version?
    What do you mean by "when I try to download a disk"?

        And if it's your computer, do you have admin privileges on that disk?

            Are you talking about Spy Hunter anti-malware program?
            If so, did you buy it on the internet, and you downloaded it from there?

              Sorry

              C:\Program Files\calculator.msi
              You don't have permission to save in this location.
              Contact administrator to obtain permission.
