cant download programmes from

hi im trying to download programmes like avg and adaware for a friend on his computer as he has had a lot of virus trouble etc

i thought i had got rid of it all as its stable and working well, no pop up and no trouble

but when i try to download anything from like adaware the link dosnt open up the windows download dialogue box, what happens is the internet explorer page jumps to the thankyou message satting that it is downloaded

it obviously isnt, so how come its doing this?
is the computer still infected, it was vitumonde and antivirus 2009 infection on his computer

any ideas

Turn OFF Pop-up Blocker in Tools on IE.

Once it has started to Download Turn it back on again.

Just tried it and it works.

Or try opening a new user account with administration rights and then see if you can download Ok from there.
