   I'm forwarding this to r-sig-mixed-models as I think it might be of 
general interest.

   There doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the lme4 directory on 
CRAN <https://cran.r-project.org/web/packages/lme4/index.html>; my best 
guess is that your problem has something to do with the recent release 
of 3.2.3 and some kind of delay in the CRAN/mirror-updating pipeline. 
(As far as I know there should be no differences between Windows 7 and 
10 in this respect.)  I would try again with a different mirror, 
possibly even with the main CRAN site (cran.r-project.org).

    Looking at the CRAN page cited above, version 1.1-10 is available 
for all operating systems/versions of R (except R version 3.1.x on MacOS 
Snow Leopard, which is still back at 1.1-7). Installing from source can 
be helpful in edge cases (it does require compilation tools).
