HELP!!! - "Invalid torrent file"

I'm hoping someone here can help me out with this problem! I'm trying to download the torrent "The Beatles xxxx-xx-xx Anthology [Discs 9 & 10]" but I keep getting the message "invalid torrent file". I've had no problems downloading discs 1-8 but for some reason I'm unable to do this with discs
9-10. Currently there are 11 leechers so I must be in error about something I've done. Can someone here tell me what I'm doing wrong and how I can correct this. Thank you very much!!!

When I get that message I delete the attachment.torrent file from the DOWNLOAD MANAGER in windows then I retry. That almost always works for me. You might have to do that a number of times to get it to work. Hope this helps.

I'm sorry to bother you with this question but I don't know how to do what you're saying I need to do in order to fix the problem. Can you please explain how to do each step. I never had to do this before. Thanks!

I'm not a PC person, so I can't explain what he is trying to say, but something else to try.... Delete the torrent file from your bittorrent client (usually a red X). Then go to the thread and do a Force Refresh (shift + refresh). Now click to Save the File to your Hard Drive. Once the torrent file is saved to your hard drive, drag/drop it into your bittorrent client to start.
