Hiding the download link

How do I hide the download link so search engines do not index the page with the link on it?

When I search Google for the indexed pages by entering
site:http://mydomain.com, it's the first page Google lists.

People can download it without opting in first.
How do I fix that?

you need to set your meta tags to no index/no follow, so that the search engines wont list the page in search rankings. depends on how you built your site as to how to do that.
If you are using WordPress, then you need a plugin that will do your robots meta. I recommend the Platinum SEO pack personally.
