    Maybe you're really <i>not</i> allowed to download the file.

    the file is in a folder for which the public does not have permission to download from.

    this could be because:
    1.) the person in charge of the server doesn't know what he's doing.
    2.) the person who pays for the website on someone elese's server has exceeded his bandwidth.
    3.) the person in charge of the server or file doesn't wan't anyone downloading it.

    no matter what caused it, the only way to change it is to hack into the server and reset the permissions. It's not a problem on your end.

    i would check back over the next few days and see if it's fixed.

    If you were using a downloader proggie vs. windows inate 'save target as' dl option, that, too, could be the problem.

    What proggie are you trying to get? Maybe it' available elsewhere, or maybe some one here can DL and email it to you a an attachment?
