Android studio Setup

Posted on 2015-01-29
Last Modified: 2015-02-04
I've been trying to install Android Studio on my computer and it constantly says Downloading components.  It won't change from that status.  I've killed it and started it but the next button won't enable.

It's been like 2 weeks.

Any ideas?
