Try adding some details about your environment such as OS and downloading method. – Ярослав Рахматуллин Mar 16 '13 at 18:02

I just ran into this last week, they would get to 99% and then "fail", or just sit forever. As Daniel Hicks suggests, it was the Anti-virus.

I found that if I went and renamed the .partial files Internet Explorer makes, the files actually worked fine.

Disabled the anti-virus and files started downloading fine. Replaced it with a different (newer) AV product and they've been fine since.

So, perhaps try temporarily disabling or uninstalling your current AV package.
