Welcome to the forum.
My first guesses would be that your IE has the security settings too high, or that you have some other security issue, with either your OS, or maybe some anti-virus/anti-malware software.
Just for this download from Adobe, I would first lower the security settings for IE and test. If that does not help, then look at the security settings in Windows. If you are still having issues, disable any anti-virus/anti-malware software.
Do not forget to turn any security settings, or anti-whatever software, back to your original settings, for when you visit less-trusted Web sites.
Good luck, and hope that helps,
Another "watch out for" which may or may not affect your download of those tryouts of Photoshop Elements 11 and Premiere Elements 11.
I used Mozilla Firefox for such a download only the other day.
I did not run into any browser issues but I did forget about the typical recommendations to shutoff the antivirus and firewalls such tasks.
My only problem with this download was at the beginning.
(a) There was request to download and install an updated version of the Adobe Download Assistant. I went through the process only to be informed that I had the latest version.
(b) Moving forward, when asked to set up a folder on my computer for the download, I created a folder on the Desktop....then I was notified that my computer did not have enough RAM for the download...in fact, I have 8 GB installed and about 5 to 6 GB available. When I created the folder on Documents instead of Desktop, I did not get that message, and the download and subsequent installation went without issues.
Please update us on your progress when you get a chance.
While I have not used FireFox, I have had somewhat similar issues with Chrome. In my cases, going to IE 8 fixed the issues. It pays to have a couple browsers handy. With some downloads, one can be better than another. Probably depends on the Web site?
Several Premiere Elements versions ago, Internet Explorer (whatever the current version) was my answer for downloading and installing the Premiere Elements tryouts from Adobe. Firefox would fail me consistently. Firefox is up to version 21.0 now and is handing these downloads for me flawlessly.
Seems to be working in latest Chrome v 27.0.1453.110. Thanks for everyone's suggestions.
Hope that the installations go well.
With about IE 9 (IIRC), there were some issues with several sites. That is why I still have IE 8 (and also IE 7) on my main machine.
Chrome is my main browser, but it has proved to not be perfect for everything.
Once, when browers were much "younger," I kept about a half-dozen on my computer, to test my Web design. Nowadays, that is not so much of an issue, but I still have a bunch hanging around - just in case.
