Thread: Newbie ? Running Downloaded Software Progs

  1. #1
    Ok don't shoot me I've been on this for exactly 13 minues

    Downloaded a few soft. progs, ms office/works etc - can't get them to run/install/open- nothing happens when I click on any of the files, Im assuming there's something else I need to do to get these to install but I have no clue -

    thanks for your help!

    thanks!

    ok, first don't click on those files anymore. second, run anti-virus if u have one (if not get it first before we go any further). third, are they huge files?

    if they arent verified then they might be dodgy, scan them like nikita69 said.

    Missdiva,

    What are the file extensions of the programs that you DLed?

    The file extension will tell you what you need to do to open it...

    I've run AV a few times all ok.

    They are .exe files - ms works type of stuff, this one is 312kb

    I thought the computer could just run exe files as it did when I Got some from dl.com but these dont work --

    thanx guys
