Windows 7: downloads

I'm trying to download a program which says "It's a free download" however when I try and save it, it only gives me about 2%. Adobe Reader X and just about any so called free download. You have to be connected to the Internet otherwise you can't get it and this is on most so called free download because I try and download so I can take it to another computer which is a stand-alone. It seems like you can't do anything without being connected to the Web including playing games and so forth. It looks like our society doesn't want you to do anything on your computer without big brother knowing about it. Maybe someone can tell why this is?

You can find standalone files of Adobe reader if you look hard, this is an attempt to save bandwidth because using their downloader you can't use multiple connections to download their file, it's not a conspiracy to watch you or anyone else, as for games this is a form of DRM to keep your from downloading pirated games, it's a bad thing if you're used to buy original games, but if you like steam you can just set it to offline mode and be good, so not a big deal at all

A left field answer ....

I gave up with Adobe reader a long time ago due to the bloated nature of the application I now use Nitro PDF which is available as a standalone installer and has better functionality than Adobe Reader
