Using Word 2007. Trying to download calendar templates from File/New/ Templates

Template Download Error.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet---I am connected
Make sure your browser is not in offline mode---- It is not
Try to download the template again later.---- This happens to all downloads.

Internet explorer is my default browser
