I tried to install AVG free but it keeps saying it cannot download because of my Security
Settings. I was up until 2 am this morning until I gave up at trying to figure out how to change the settings.

This morning I went to WalMart and purchased a brand new version of Norton only to find when I opened the box....... that all it contained was a card with a Pass Code and it has to be downloaded from the internet so I can give the Pass Code.
Then I got the same message... " can not download it because of my Security Settings".
So I'm back to square one.

Neither one gives amy details on where or how to change my Security Settings.

I now this is a stupid question but P~L~E~A~S~E~...... I need help.

This is likely the result of a malware infection, so after using Tek's advise to fix the download issue, you might want to run Malwarebytes. Malwarebytes | Free Anti-Malware & Internet Security Software

I would also just do a full reset of IE How to reset Internet Explorer settings

None of those things will help this user download software.

Turns out the guy is a spammer, just did a few posts to look legit. He'll be banned before too long.
