Change file names after download

If I change the name of a downloaded file, eg, a free spam filter or a Microsoft update which has a number and letter is it Ok to change it to something I recognise after I have saved it to "my Documents/downloads" or will it not be recognised.
I sometime have a problem trying to find the file again as I forget which is which.

Thanks

Yes - you can call them whatever you like. Don't change the file extension (e.g. .exe) though.

OK mate will change what I recognise and then from now on will change them as I download.
Some such as CCleaner I do know but others I have tried to guess at by the date.

Thanks
ruskle
