I am trying to download a program from a website. Initially, I could not get anything to download because I didn't get the prompt asking me if I wanted to download the program. I added the site as a trusted site in my IE options. I also turned off the pop-up blocker. Now I get the prompt and I give my permission to download. However, now I get the error "Error 5 caching to c:\windows\downloaded program files\bzad303a.cab. I tried to do a search on "error 5" but it's too generic for me to get any useful results.

Any suggestions?
Thanks!

Have you tried an alternative browser? Or have you tried saving it to the desktop as compared to c:\windows\downloaded program files\bzad303a.cab?

I haven't tried another browser. Actually, I tried this again and I am not getting an option to save the program to my computer - it's just trying to run it and giving the error.
