Try the easy fix. Do a System Restore to a point before the download.

After that try the filefront link it seemed like it would work.

Another option would be to try and delete the option using Unlocker. A very handy tool to delete stubborn files. :)

It seems that there seems to be a server issue at the location where the file is being hosted. It would be better if you stay away from the downloads till the issues are resolved. Alternately, you could try downloading it from here.

Hope that helps. :)
