The best way I know of, is click "save" instead of open when prompted, burn it to a disc, or if that isn't an option, just run it from the saved location on your H/D

when you click save, it will give you an option window to put it where you want. Make a folder where you want to put it, (i.e. C\pgm files\new update) when you get the save to window, browse to that folder. It's usually easiest to make a specific folder for something like that to make it easier to find later.
when you get it D/L, go to that folder, double click on it, then close everything (windows explorer etc.) and it should run and install fine. If you can, burn it to CD from that folder, then the disc should start auto when you plug it in. if not, do it the same as from your H/D

If you remember the name, do a search in windows explorer by name, or by modified, and enter the date you did it. you may need to go into tools, folder options, click show hidden files, to find it.
