Just moved up from XP to a new laptop with Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit. I am not familiar with this new operating system, but believed I would be able to download Open Office without any problem. The download was successful, but it does not appear to be installed and it remains in the temporary download file. I am not sure what I need to do to rectify this. On completion of the download, a message appeared asking if I wanted the program to change the computer programs. I have not acted on this yet. Is this the choice I need to select in order to install this download?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you

You must run the setup as Administrator and https://ssl-proxy-updated.herokuapp.com/9353c243e3e4d239965b67a304ddb31aa2ad143d/687474703a2f2f696d673337352e696d616765736861636b2e75732f696d673337352f323832342f636f6e746578746d656e752e6a7067/[/img] and accept everything that user account control ask you

But you have to be sure that the app that you are trying to install is safe - It is recommended to be downloaded from the original website.

The download was successful, but it does not appear to be installed

In every Windows version, download is just that.
You need to install downloaded program by doubleclicking on downloaded file.

Thank you GMmasterking and Broni for your help. I will follow your advice as Administrator, something I did not realise was necessary as I am the only user of the computer, I suppose it is intended as an additional security measure to prevent unauthorised progs being installed. I still use XP on a netbook and I am familiar with it but the Win 7 system is a very different prospect and as far as I can judge is Vista reborn (a bit bloated but possibly an improvement).

I downloaded Open Office from the Oracle website which I hope is OK but will check again to see if there is another one dedicated to Open Office before I install the program.

Again, many thanks.

Your choice of site to download from is fine and the preferred source. No need to look else where.
