I can't seem to download anything

Every time I go to various different downloading pages (such as trying to download iTunes) I get the following message -
You are not authorized to view this page

HTTP Error 403 - Forbidden
Internet Explorer

I've had it on any number of download sites, none of them remotely controversial.
I supply the correct e-mail address, I'm not a spammer and -other than the odd exaggeration on my expenses form- lead a blameless life.
Why is this happening?

BTW I'm using an AMD1800+ based system, WinXP Pro, Zonealarm Pro (even with all cookies etc allowed) and Norton Antivirus.

Couple of things to try: dumping Temp Int Folder; Tools/Internet options/Advanced/, tick 'restore defaults'.
