Judging by the original post I think Steve_John is having some kind of problem where his antivirus is preventing ether the download or running of exe files, and I would assume it is happening with most exe files he tries to download/run not just one or two, otherwise he would likely have posted "Antivirus blocking [filename].exe".
If your antivirus is preventing you running or downloading exe files at all then it is not doing it's job properly, if it is preventing running of any exe file (as opposed to just one or two which it regards as suspicious) then it's either suffering a severe false positive detection rate or it's got a setting (perhaps accidentaly turned on) to block all exe files which weren't there when you installed it. Which antivirus is it? I you are very confident that the exe files it is preventing from rnning/downloading are safe then you can report them as false positives and should be abe to whitelist them manually for your own machine. Exe files, as file types go, are the most likely to be dangerous (along with scr and other executable formats) but many exe files are safe, they are afterall the basis for all the programs you run. When downloading an exe file (that is when you are downloading progras) you should NEVER run it there and then, but instead save it into a folder, scan it with your antivirus, then scan it with a second opinion scanner, (you could also scan it with virustotal as well) then check it's properties and digital signatures before running it from the folder you saved it into. If you are following that procedure can you explain which point in it you reach when your antivirus prevets you from continuing?
Thank you @rp88
