I have a problem on my Vista home PC if I try to download or save a programe with a .exe extension it seems to get blocked. Two progs for example that seem to causing me grief are Mcafee and AVG. I know I can rename the files before saving but is there a way of downloading normaly. Many thanks
Thanks babybell there was no error messages. When I downloaded the file it gave the option to RUN or SAVE but neither worked. When I downloaded the programe this morning and was given the option to SAVE, I changed the file extension to *.exd and it then saved itself in the chosen folder. I then renamed the file again to *.exe and then run the programe as it should all ok. It seems to me windows on this PC does not allow .exe files to download.
I had a old version of AVG 8.5 which crashed while trying to uninstal. I had to go to the AVG site to use their unistal tool. This uninstal tool was an .exe file which is where I found the problems seemed to start.
