  • Hi,

    Firstly, please let us know the following:

    1. Let us know the network environment, home or domain?

    2. Is it a newly purchased computer which has pre-installed Windows 7?

    3. What application do you use to download.

    4. Let us the error messages when downloading fails.

    Meanwhile, each computer has an administrator account. However, it can be hidden for some reasons.

    Please type lusrmgr.msc in Start Menu search box to check all the users in your computer and capture a screenshot for us.

    If this computer is in a domain environment, it is recommended to contact your system administrator for help.

    Hope this helps.
