Which version are you attempting to downlaod? The one from Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux or a developer/beta version?

just the regular one ..
I get past the accept and install but then it stalls on the download, that is i do not get the download progress window.
The IE8 page indicates 'done' in the bottom left corner.

i am clueless why.
btw igoogle.com is very slow with poor fonts etc as well

very strange as i have a clean install

Sounds odd. Check your network settings. Try opening Command Prompt as admin and type:

ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew

See if that helps any.

Yep, I've heard of this problem before, but I didn't know how to fix it . I had tried to help my friends install Chrome a few months earlier in IE8 but it would always stop in the middle. Try downloading it from a different web browser.

Sorry for the delay in response.

Have you tried downloading Firefox and downloading Google Chrome through that? Not really something I'd want to do but its something that might work if its just IE thats causing this.

If that doesn't work it could also be your DNS, do you use a custom DNS like OpenDNS or Google's DNS? I know with those I couldn't download some programs properly.
