Either will work. Save will allow you to save the file and run again if you need, eg, if the installation fails for some reason. Run will save the file to a temp folder and run when completed downloading. It's really up to you. I personally always save then run.

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

Please help me in downloading this antivirus,i tried but couldnt. please give an easier description of downloading this file.


The easiest way to maintain your computer without intrusive antivirus programs is using the Microsoft Security Essentials which comes free it covers antivirus as well as ad ware and spyware. Does and regular scan of any software or file changes that may occur while on line. You can download this software here. I have not received any problems using this software.
Now if you wish to continue with the software you want to download. Just go and click on their download link and follow the directions. If you download the software of your choice since you did not describe the software you want to us. Be sure to delete any of the download from that software so it does not conflict just go to control panel and click on add and remove programs. Then download the MSE software from the here link above. Please comment for me to know if this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa! John

The below tutorial is a guide for doing that. You can follow the steps and get the question solved -
How to Convert YouTube to MP3?
YouTube to MP3 converter is not a must to complete Youtube to MP3 conversion. Instead, all you need is Leawo Free YouTube Downloader and its sister program called Leawo Free FLV Converter. So converting YouTube video to MP3 generally includes downloading Youtube video and converting the downloaded YouTube video to MP3, since YouTube video is FLV video on internet.
The former is a free YouTube downloader, which can download YouTube videos and other online FLV vidoes for free while the latter functions as an FLV converter which can convert YouTube to MP3 and many other popular video/audio formats. So use these two free programs, we can freely convert YouTube video to MP3 easily.
The following tutorial demonstrates exactly how to download YouTube video from YouTube and convert the downloaded YouTube video to MP3 within just a few clicks.
Step 1: Launch Leawo Free YouTube Downloader and type YouTube URL in the address bar.
screenshot1.jpgStep 2: Click settings icon to select MP3 as the target output format in "Auto Recording" tab in the pop-up window.
screenshot2.jpgStep 3: Select one YouTube video you want to download, click "Video" tab to check the YouTube video downloading progress and watch it in the built-in FLV player at the same time.screenshot3.jpgStep 4: When the YouTube video downloading progress reaches 100% and a yellow smiling face appears, Leawo Free FLV Converter pops up and converts the downloaded YouTube videos to MP3 automatically, showing the ongoing YouTube to MP3 conversion progress.
