I'm using Vista Home Premium that has been fully updated and I have full administrator rights on my Acer 4530 laptop.
Several weeks ago I downloaded Free Download Manager from www.freedownloadmanager.org and it worked just fine. For an unknown reason it stopp working, so I uninstalled it and reinstalled from the same site. At the end of the download set up I get amessage saying "Unable to execute file: C:\Program Files\Free Download manager\fdm.exe. Create Process failed; code 5. Access is denied.". I'm using Kaspersky and even turned off the firewall but had the same results. I've checked for viruses, ect. using Malware Bytes, Spybot and Super Antispuware but nothing shows up.
After this problem started I uninstalled Free Download Manager and tried to download Microsoft Download Manager to see if that installation was sucessful. While I didn't get the same message, I couldn't get the software to open after the download. I've no idea where to look now - hope you folks can point me in the right direction. I don't have original Vista installation discs as the laptop came with the software installed. I have made Vista discs from the Acer site.
