Try downloading it and saving to your Documents folder instead of the Desktop.

Few things to try.

Disable your antivirus and download again the file.

Try to download the file using a different internet explorer.

Do what panais suggested first. See if you can then run it; if not:

Start an Elevated Command Prompt and type the commands:
cd C:\Users\Tolis\Documents
dir
Is the executable listed?

Don't close the command prompt yet, we still need it.

Are you sure you downloaded it from Vista 64bit? That message does not make sense if you did...
