Can,t download files the normal way.Opens to Wordp

HI,I hope you can help me ,I,ve emailed Microsoft and Gateway about this still waiting for there answer .
The problem my comp. was working fine until I decided to use a reg _clean program to delete unnecessary,and duplicate files plus other clean up programs. I,ve use this in the past with no problem with my win 2000 pro.Now when I try to down load any software it doesn,t open the usual way,it open,s with a icon on my desktop that is a red,white and blue box with a red A in it. opening this it brings me to word pad, not opening to the usual icon,s or to zip files.The file in word pad is unreadable and seems like nothing to do with the down loaded file.
As i,m writing this I am down loading the Easy Zip program which I had before. I,m hoping this was the problem. If not do you have any suggestions for me?
Still the same after zip file loaded.
Do you have ant ideas on how I can correct this. THANKS TONY
