I don't have problems downloading anything else on either computer. It is exclusively this one application, and I've tried using all 3 links on the bleepingcomputer tutorial page.

IE is set for 128 bit, and check marks next to SSL 2.0, SSL 3.0, TLS 1.0

Ideas?

I have a bad virus - ESET (NOD32) wasn't updated, and I'm guessing that's how my co-worker got it on his laptop.

Tech Support at ESET told me to run it, but as I say I can't download and install it. They also had me run Superantispyware and hijackthis. I've done those 2 and sent them the logs.

post the SAS log, we might have a few other suggestions not quite so drastic as jumping to combofix

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

Super anti spyware

I would suggest a scan and fix with another program, MBAM, it's log file help's identify infections a little more clearly
