If the Podware download won’t downoad properly it is because browsers and anti-malware programs are trying to protect your PC from external threats, and this can have unintended consequences. The Podware download is safe but you may need to suspend your antivirus software to allow the download.
Norton Internet Security can be too secure (!)
You can disable Download Intelligence temporarily for the time it takes to download the program. Do not disable Norton Auto-Protect.
How to do this: In Norton go to Settings > Web > Download Intelligence > change to Off at top of page – Select Apply > select a time and OK.
