It sounds that the problem is not yours but these sites. Maybe they are so busy that you can't download exe file completely. Did you try it again when the problem happened? Here, I used to search and download any software. I never met that problem you said. Download any exe file quickly and safely.
Try it!(y)

Welcome to TSG....

To help you with this problem there are several things that need to be known, first, some system specs, then what type of internet do you have Dial-ul or Broadband? Are you using any type of internet acceleration or download accelerators? Also list the type of anti-virus, malware scanning programs you have and please do a HijackThis for us as per this next listing:

To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe

Save the file to your desktop.
Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
Come back here to this thread and Paste the log in your next reply. DO NOT have Hijack This fix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.

A security expert should take a look at your log - please be patient.
