Probably cookies, and it’s most likely Windows Firewall that’s stopping them

Yes turn Windows Firewall off, in control panel\security

I wouldn't turn off your firewall.

When the warning appears, is there a yellow information band just below the toolbar? If so click it and there should be an option to allow the download. You won't get anything harmful from this site.
