Hello Hiroyuki,

Many security programs block EXE file because it is excutable and can harm your computer.  Disable antivirus and other security programs and download the file. Then turn the security programs back on.

Hope this helps!

You may want to consider firefox. When you download it on firefox, it downloads, checks for viruses, then all you do is right click on the file and open and you should be on your way of downloading. To install fire fox, go to
http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ 
and download it.

Hope it works
