[protege-discussion] Protege download

You can skip the plugin link at the top and just use the download  
link (that is appropriate to your machine) below the "available  
installers" button.  Using one of these links should rule out a large  
number of potential issues (e.g. a firewall that is stripping out  
javascript or the wrong version of java installed). The link for  
windows essentially direct you straight (for a windows machine) to  
the following links: 

depending on whether you state that you have a jvm or not.

Actually this doesn't rule out these problems.  For example, though  
it is not as common any more, some firewalls strip out javascript.   
This would be a problem (but not with all web sites).  Also this  
doesn't sound like malware, but the av software itself may be  
crashing or interfering with the download.  The fact that the browser  
*crashes* is a huge hint but I can't figure out what it means yet.

But choose the link below the "Available Installers" button because  
this rules a lot of simple stuff out.
