What types of stuff can you not download? Just surfing the web in a web browser is downloading stuff, and I'm assuming you had to do that to get here and post. Did you have to use another computer/connection to post here, or are you using another application to download stuff and that's what's not working?

Do you get any messages?
Normally I would expect a prompt asking if you want to run it or save it to disk?
Have you tried "open in a new window"
Have you tried a different browser.
If you are using Internet Explorer, please check your security settings and check that "enable/allow file downloads" is checked.

Maybe something wrong with the site you are trying to download from...
Can you download from another site...say microsoft.com??

If you can give me an example of a site where you have this problem I can try to provoke the problem on one of my boxes.
What operating system are you using?
What are your "certificates" settings?
Are you saving to disk or doing direct installs?
Try this site and see if you can download the freeware: http://www.diamondcs.com.au/index.php?page=products
