Microsoft Safety Scanner

I downloaded Microsoft Safety Scanner and when I click on it this is what I get: Not a valid 32 bit app. I am running Windows 7 Pro. Does anyone have an answer for this?

dakota37,

Have you tried renaming the program while you download it?

Also, try running in Safe Mode and see how it goes.
