This is a common problem with certain anti-virus scanners for many users of Firefox (as you may know, Orca uses Firefox's page rendering engine).

To fix it, either update your antivirus scanner or tell Orca not to scan files once downloaded:

- go to about:config (type it into the address bar)
- continue past the warning
- in the filter box at the top, type in scan
- in the results area you should see:
- double-click it to change the value from true to false
