Does that file have .exe file extension?

Download a fresh Firefox copy and save the file to the desktop.

I Did that. When I try to install, I get the same message. I have come to believe this is a windows 7 or IE 9 problem. I also have active X problems that I can not resolve. I can not open Gmail also

I found a fix. I installed Firefox using a program called " Revo uninstaller pro " Installed with no problem.
