comment Some executables refuse to download on Windows 8
I am a computer profession. Reinstalling Windows is my last resort, if nobody here has any other suggestions. Thanks though.

That was my first guess, but I don't have any antivirus installed at the moment (none of the antivirus installers will download >:|). I removed McAfee, and the only security-related thing remaining seems to be Windows Firewall, and disabling that temporarily doesn't let these downloads through. Amazingly, this same problem occurs with Free Download Manager, on the same files -- it makes it to a few hundred KB then stops completely.
