In your case please do this using your Windows Control Panel:

 

Internet Oprtions -> Delete Button -> Delete Button

 

Then try using the same link. From a IE ("Internet Explorer") browser window.

 

If that still fails please try downloading from here: http://www.skype.com/go/getskype-msi

Please try downloading/installing from here and choose the run or open option when prompted: http://download.skype.com/SkypeSetup.exe

 

If this fails, please delete your IE ("Internet Explorer") browser cache, cookies and temp files and try again using a IE browser window, even if IE is not your default browser.
