Windows 7: downloaded exe, not opening and no copying possible

2 Weeks Ago   #1

Win7 global Service Pack 1
downloaded exe, not opening and no copying possible

Hi, I have downloaded an Exe file and would like to use it. It came as a zip and unfolds ok in the Dowload section.
If I try to start it or copy it or move it elsewhere on the PC, I get the message "unable to access the peripheral, or to the Path or to the File. Maybe you don't have the proper rights to do this". This is translated from french.
I have Administratir privileges, try to start it 'as an administrator'.
What is wrong and do you have a solution ?
Thanks a lot !

Downloaded 64 bit but need 32 bit
I took advantage of the student offer of Windows 7 and last night downloaded windows 7. I thought that because my laptop was 64 bit capable I could do a clean install to it from the download, which I now obviously realise was a mistake. Does anyone know how I can change this download for a 32...
