[R] problem downloading R

Does the following sound familiar?

The Windows installer starts installing (or decompressing) R, flashing
one file name at a time.
And then, part way through, says XXXX file is corrupt, and gives you
the choice to ignore.
And if you click ignore, then the next file does the same thing.
And one quickly realizes, that every subsequent file will have the same message.

Then if you re-download the installation file, the same thing happens.
Except that the first file flagged as corrupted, is not necessarily
the same file.
