    Remove the download, and repeat the download, saving it to a known location, then avoid clicking on it until you are ready to install it. We prefer to locate ours at a specific named location, rather than to the Desktop, and create a specific folder for that purpose... calling it, Downloads, or My Downloads, or anything that suits you... so you know where your downloads are routinely stored.
    If this is a download for which you paid money, report this failure to the download site, and they will usually allow a new download... after telling you what to do with the old one.
