Exe Files Download as wordpad Doc.

By carmar ·
I am having a problem. Every time I try to download an exe file it gets turned into a Wordpad.Doc file. Where do I have to go to change this.. If I bring up the file and try to use the Save As opton EXE is not an option..

That is really strange, there are a few things I would look at, but you can just right click on the name and choose rename now for an easy fix. If even a rename doesn't help it's probably because you aren't showing file extensions and when you rename the file you need to use quotes. I might run a virus scan. Does this happen to non-exe files?
