I'm sorry to hear that you're having trouble downloading your program. It's frustrating when updates interfere with your work, but there may be a reason Microsoft Edge is stopping your download. Here are a few steps you can try to resolve the issue:
Check your internet connection: Ensure that you have a stable internet connection that can support large downloads, if the program is large.
Clear your cache: Microsoft Edge may be stopping the download due to a cache issue. Try clearing your browser cache and cookies and then attempting the download again.
Temporarily disable your antivirus: Antivirus software can sometimes interfere with downloads. Try disabling your antivirus temporarily and then attempting the download again.
Check for any specific error messages: When the download stops, look for any error messages and, if possible, see if you can get a screenshot of them. This way, it can be narrowed down whether it's a technical malfunction or if the browser is theoretically doing its job and blocking the download for some other reason, for example if it thinks the program is unsafe.
Try a different browser: If you're still having trouble, try using a different browser to download the program.
I hope these steps help you download the program successfully. If you continue to have issues, please let me know and I'll try my best to assist you further.
