    Once we click that, we're going to click on "Download Spybot 2.4 Free Edition".
    This will show us different links with mirrors. Mirror sites are simply places that Spybot has deemed safe to download their product from. They also have their own mirror sites as well.

    We're going to choose "Save and Run" by clicking the drop-down arrow because as soon as it's finished downloading, we want to run and install it.
    Alternatively, press "Run" to run the installer without saving it. Press "Save" to save it and run the installer later. We may get a prompt from the computer asking if we want to allow Spybot to make changes to our computer. They are safe changes, so we can allow it.
