My new computer won't let me download firefox. It says that it is unsafe. What now.

Posted

I just bought a new computer with Windows 7. I want to download firefox but when you press RUN and then it downloads, my computer checks it with some sort of securtiy and says it is unsafe and then you can only delete it and not bypass that. Any suggestions? I love Firefox and want to use it on my new computer.

Do not click Run, but download and save the file to the desktop and start the installation with a double-click on that desktop icon.
