I tried to download Ubuntu from the main website twice, even made a donation through PayPal, yet both times the download I expected didn't start. I was also not prompted where to do the download either.

What am I missing here? May it help to disable Windows firewall?

This question is unlikely to help any future visitors; it is only relevant to a small geographic area, a specific moment in time, or an extraordinarily narrow situation that is not generally applicable to the worldwide audience of the internet.

Try again but try pressing "not now, take me to download". If the download does not start, hit "download now" again. – Ross Fleming Jan 2 '13 at 23:37
I was trying to download Ubuntu. It finally worked when I disabled Malwarebytes. Thanks for your help, anyway. Looking forward ot learning Ubuntu. – Terre Jan 2 '13 at 23:57

Try clicking on the 'Not now, take me to download' button.

If that still doesn't work it probably has something to do with the country your in.
