Please can anybody help me?
I have tried downloading Vista Driver for Edimax EW-7318USG, Hi-Gain Wireless USB 2.0 Adapter.
When I download I get a message saying that Paint cannot open it as it is unrecognised or not supported.
Could anybody advise me what I should do to get this download sorted out?

Thankyou

What is the type of the downloaded file - .ZIP .EXE etc? The "Paint" application shouldn't be trying to open the file.

It is a zip file.
I wonder if my norton symantec is a problem here as the error message seems to be coming in a yellow surround, if that makes any sense?

You have winzip or winrar i presume?

I think the problem was with the download. Even when Edimax sent me the link my pc started flashing wildly as soon as I went into downloading.
I pointed this out to Edimax and their excuse was simply that it was just an information page! Si I suggested they report a fault with their download. Not sure if that will do any good!
I sent the thing back and will buy something else in a shop!
Thanks
