    Craig,

    What is the file you have downloaded?

    If memory serves it should be an executable file (.exe) for you to run the installer. Should be something like....

    iRacingInstaller_2011*******.exe

    :)

    Looks like the download isn't completing... it's still a temporary file (hasn't renamed itself to an .exe yet)

    try following, rename downloaded file to .exe extension (add .exe on end of filename) and after that just doubleclick the file
