There are 3 options I can see
1 . It is not a Windows 7 problem at this time, (post to Malware Removal Logs forum area)
2 . It is an infection problem stopping downloads, (post to Malware Removal Logs forum area)
3 . Uninstall any version of ComboFix installed, by this method - Press Windows Key + R together, and in the Run box you see, type Combofix /uninstall (note the space between Combofix and / ) then press Enter or OK - This will remove any currently installed version of the program.
Now :Please read the ComboFix guide below. If your problem continues or is not solved - - Please post to the Malware Removal area of the forum -

I am having the same issue. My McAfee antivirus flagged the combofix download from bleepingcomputer.com as an infected with the artemis virus and deleted the file and blocked access to it. This has never happened before until today. It appears the file may actually be infected OR something in the application has changed causing mcafee to pick up a false positive.

Thank you for the quick and thorough response, Quietman7. I did download the file on another system running a different antivirus product (bitdefender) and it was not flagged as containing malware/virus so it must be the case that McAfee updated its definitions to flag ComboFix as malware. I did try your suggestion regarding disabling mcafee and downloading it again and now it is able to download successfully.
