Sad I can't download the latest version of Clamwin. Don't know what has changed. Using metaproducts download express - this shows a small file called downloading.php being downloaded onto my PC but no set up executable program downloaded. Any ideas anyone?

Delete any of those files and download ClamWin from the ClamWin web site download - available at http://www.clamwin.com/ on the web.

Are you using a download manager? This will happen, for example, if the referrer is not set. You would have to change your options in your download manager to send the referrer. Sourceforge is programmed to do that (why beats me). To check to see if this is what is happening, just open the downloading.php file in notepad or any other editor and you can see that it is actually an error page (a 404 error page).

I discovered that my download manager was to blame.
I could not find anywhere in the options to prevent the download failing so I uninstalled it.
Now using the standard Microsoft download feature - download successful.
