3DS Max 2012 Install files corrupted??

When I try to install 3DS Max 2012, it says that some of the installation files are corrupt. And that I should download a fresh copy and retry the installation. I did, and I got the same message.


The error message in the command window was, "CRC failed in x64\max\ unexpected end of archive"


Please help!

Use the alternate browser download method and make sure you install with Admin rights with your anti-virus and UAC disabled.

How do I change antivirus and UAC settings for downloading in a different browser?
