MS Word takes over my download

By olyveoil ·
I have run into a very frustrating and, to me, an unusual problem. Every time I attempt to download any type of program/software, MS Word takes it and converts it to a .doc file rendering it useless. Is there anyone out there who can help me solve this problem? I am very grateful for any help with this ordeal.

I would suggest looking at the associations of the file types exe and/or zip (or whatever the files being downloaded are). To do this use Windows Explorer and men item Tools/Folder Options/File Types

Another thing to try would be RIGHT-clicking on the link for the file and using Save As.
