How many are you downloading?

It was just one...lol PGN is where it loads your game on the board screen right?

PGN is a file standard to chess game viewers.  So yes, you can open them in programs like Chessbase, Winboard, etc.

If you are having trouble downloading one PGN file, you've got issues.  I can download them in about 1-2 seconds.  Could be your internet connection, browser issue, or some other computer glitch.

Maybe it has already downloaded - you just don't know where to find it.

Not sure if that is your problem.  When you said it "won't leave the download box" I thought you might have meant the Firefox download window.  It wouldn't hurt to try Firefox.  What kind of internet connection do you have?

High speed i guess plug-in to the wall

PGNs are basically text files, so they shouldn't take long to download, even ones with lots of games.
