Default downloads from computeractive magazine

I am unable to download free downloads from computeractive magazine.

It flashes on screen then disappears -ICould it be my firewall?I run Tesco's internet security. Do I require to turn it off to download thereby putting myself at risk of a virus. I'm not sure how to add it to my allowed sites.
Any advice?
