I have a user who has a Vista computer.   Yes I know they should toss it, but they cannot right now.  The computer was recently re-installed with a 32 bit OEM dvd.  The installation went very smoothly.   We were able to download Firefox, Chrome, Malwarebytes and Apache open Office and install them.  But when it comes to things like CCleaner and Superantispyware, we go to Downloads and double click but the wheel spins for two seconds goes away and nothing happens.  I have tried some things like checking the exefile, and that seems to be okay.  Any ideas?
