When I try to download a files such as one from TrandMicro (HouseCall - Free Online Virus and Spyware Scan)

A small window opens stating from the top:-

Opening HousecallLauncher64.exe

    You have chosen to open

  **HousecallLauncher64.exe*

      which is a: Binary File
      From: http;//go.trendmicro.com

Would you like to save this file

                                       Save File    or   Cancel

When I click on the Save File ..... Either another window open saying

The file could not be saved because you do not have the proper permissions.  Choose another save directory.

             or 

          Nothing at all happens

Can you please help as I would like to do a virus scan and can't ....

So why don't you download and Install MalwareBytes instead, then run a Full Scan.
