    Do you run a firewall program, or have you got the XP firewall enabled?

    These can prevent downloads unless the ports are configured.

    Try disabling them for a start and trying again, if they are active. The built in XP one would be the prime suspect.
    I have just tried the site with Kerio firewall active, and it blocked the requests, the download never started.
