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.

How do I stop My laptop from having this spinning circle in the center of the screen causing it to freeze


Has it always been there or did it just appear recently? If it is fairly new, do a system restore to an earlier date before the spinner appeared.

For general corrections, a good free program to run is Malwarebytes available from CNET download.com :
http://download.cnet.com/Malwarebytes-Anti-Malware/3000-8022_4-10804572.html

Once you have that and a program called "Privatefirewall 7.0", which I think you can get from download.com also, you won't need any of that other anti virus craapola software like Norton or Windows Defender etc. Most of those programs overload your processor and slow it down way to much. It is easier to run Malwarebyes every few days and the computer runs so much faster and smoother

I have hp windo7,& i want 2 known how 2download songs 4rm youtube,i have already installed idm,but it is not working


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.

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.
