Can be any number of reasons for that issue.

Can you download from other sites?

If so, TR has an issue.

If you follow the suggestion to the first answer and do not resolve the problem,then I would check that you have not made any changes to system to block cookies or security settings have changed

Open Tools-->Internet Options,click on Security tab,and check that you do not have the Custom setting enabled,you want the default level enabled.

HTTP 403 Forbidden

by Dowayne In reply to same

I was having that same issue but I really didn't do anything to my pc to cause it. I am running Windows XP and Internet Explorer 7. I tried everything. Got here, shut off my Firewall/Anti-virus (Zone Alarm Security Suite), and poof, I can download. My question now is, how can I get it so that I don't have to shut off my Security System to download? Anyone with an idea?

Thanks,
Dowayne

Changing security settings in firewall

by jlutgring In reply to any solutions for http 40 ...

Since there was no mention of which security system you're using, I would recommend that you google something like this:

"Norton Internet Security change firewall settings"

This is exactly how I found out how to open certain ports in NIS. Obviously, you would substitute your security suite for "Norton Internet Security" I have found most of the solutions I've needed by using Google with very specific searches.
