You're going to need to add a lot more info before anybody can even give an educated guess:-

What version of windows are you using

What web browser ?

What Internet provider ?

What if any security software you have ?

When does the link fail, at the start or the end of the download ?

Is this a direct download or are you using P2P, if so which one ?

windows xp
blueyounder/broadband
norton anitvirus 2004 professional and ad-ware se personal
the download fails in the middle half way through it
a download from the internet a game from the internet call Americas Army

You refer to a specific download, is this the only one giving a problem ? If so try posting the link, see if anybody is aware of any problems with it.

Try something else and see if it downloads OK, try something from the Downloads section. This will let us know if your system has a problem or if as Woodchip sugested your security has a problem with this particular link.
