I am trying in vain to download Essentials (I want re-install Windows Mail Live)and cannot to it.

On the Microsoft Website I click on the link 'Download Now' for the Essential Pack and absolutely nothing happens.

Any suggetions?

More on this: I am actually unable to download anything, not just software updates, I cannot download pdfs or Word docs from websites, nothing at all. I can browse websites OK, so I know connection is OK and a different PC in the house is fine.

Is there a setting somewhere that prevents downloads?
