Having issues installing McAfee via the web download link on Windows 7 using IE 9?
It could be the file name of the download.
Seems you can get illegal filenames from the McAfee site like this:
ToPSBDM.aspx\?PartnerFolder\=MC

Pretty special eh?
To get it to work, just wget the file on another machine running a real os
Rename the file to something like:
mccrappy.exe

and then pull that back on to the heap you were installing antivirus on.

Gotta love that level of testing.
