I had been using Free Download Manager for a month or so with no issues. Abruptly it stopped working. I uninstalled the program and reinstalled it from the software website. At the end of the installation I got an error message telling me that fdm.exe could not be accessed - ref code 5. I'm using Vista and have full admin rights.

Try to close your security solution and then perform the installation again. Most likely, antivirus solutions detect certain applications that are not malware as malware and deletes them or open your antivirus and add the package file to the White list to exclude it from scanning.
