The "Download Now" button downloads an application installer (CoolROM Downloader) that can contain harmful pieces of software. Use the "Alternative Download Link" to download the rom directly.

It's one of the few sites still hosting ROMs at a time and age where Nintendo is suing every single ROM-hosting site out there to kill them.
Coolrom is a decent site for getting roms and emulators, but the normal download buttons on the site download .exe files on your PC. There is an alternative download link on each page that plays a video ad in a new webpage for a few seconds and gives you a download button that allows you to download a .zip or .7z file without having to mess with the .exe installer option. The .exe installer will ask you if you'd like to install different types of software with the rom file and will install them whether you say yes or no. Coolrom has lots of roms and emulators, but they don't have any Nintendo roms anymore.
