Every time i try to download something including Open Office, it comes up with: "Unable to download OpenOfficesetup.exe from origin-ics.hotbar.com" and underneath it says "Unable to open this internet site. The requested site is either unavailable or cannot be found. Please try again later." this happens with everything, tried to download office 2010 , same thing.

If its related, a friend gave me a disc with Office 2010 on it, it loaded on my boys PC no problem, but wont load on the ladies laptop, keeps saying" Package did not install"
Many thanks in advance.
