It's a known glitch that's being addressed. For now, need to open the URL in IE so it can use the non-exe validation tool.

For example, from your page linked above, the x86 Windows 7 version links me to this in Firefox:
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/exe-validation.aspx?id=34914

Change it to this and open in IE (swap exe for genuine if the forum truncates it..):
http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/genuine-validation.aspx?id=34914

And it let me download it.
