I was just wondering if you ever found out why you can’t download anything. I have a computer running windows 7. I click to download something, then click run and nothing, like nothing happens after that, so I can never install applications like chrome, antivirus. Anti virus can’t be installed. Installation won’t push thru just after clicking the first NEXT button. Can’t update Windows defender. I also tried installing flash player, but it also won’t push thru. Even Google Chrome or any other Browsers saved from other units, once I open it on this unit, It won’t install. I also cannot open up attachments in my email. This is so annoying! Please help!
