Trouble installing downloads

I just built this computer about 3 days ago. From what I can tell, I installed Windows XP and all of the drivers correctly. However, whenever I download anything which I must install (as in I click "run" when the download window pops up), the installation file downloads and then I am told that it is not digitally signed, and am not permitted to open it. Likewise, if I attempt to save the installation file to my computer, and run it myself, I am told that the file is corrupted.
I've been told that recently built computers do this as a precaution against unsafe manufacturers. However, most of the programs I want to download are tried and true software that I have used for many years. How can I override this annoyance?
