Instead of a trial version why don't you install one of the freeware antivirus'...

Antivirus (Run only one.)
AVG Free Edition Antivirus (I personally use)
Avast Home Edition Antivirus Freeware
AntiVir Personal Edition Classic Freeware
BitDefender 8 Free Edition

If you wait a little while I am sure more members can get you similar advise.

Good luck.

Try downloading it from another site or a different mirror.

hi guys,

hi guys thanks for all your advice & help... :thumbsup:
i finally got the download and installation of etrust ez antivirus ALL SORTED OUT.
after trying the different suggestions to no avail it helped me narrow down the problem, here's what i did if it's of any use to anyone who might ever have the same problem as me!!! with a download. just a (suggestion)...

i had some cookies that i had manually edited and blocked in FF cookies exceptions tab (doubleclick etc) i just removed them from ff exceptions.
tried the download and installation again...then all was good!!!! :flowers:
i also had some of the same cookies blocked in IE along with the ie-spyad block list.

the last thing i done was PUT ALL THE COOKIES THAT I REMOVED BACK (peace of mind & security) and everytings running fine. once again THANKYOU for all your HELP.
