What is dam- download manager? What happens if you attempt to download a file from CNET without using a download manager, save it to your hard disk first, virus check it, then try to install it?
If that still fails, try downloading one of these utilities from the author's own web site, or some other trusted source, eg MajorGeeks.
If that fails as well, then you appear to have a problem other than files from CNET.
Let us know.
