Several issues may cause issues, one could be that the servers are busy, so you may just have to be patient and try again later. Another possible issue could be that is being blocked by your firewall and antivirus. You will have to add the site to the exceptions list for both items. Lastly, your proxies may be turned on. Simply turn them off in your internet browser settings.
