Your "security" settings aren't really reasonable - being unable to
download executables at all isn't really a security solution (as you
can see here - it prevents you from being able to apply security
related changes).

At any rate, there is a win32 binary zip file available from the
sourceforge downloads section (http://sf.net/projects/pidgin) where
all our downloads are hosted.
