    there are 2 types of exe files that are ok , they are both self extracting compressed file formats

    winzip exe file ( has like a vice looking icon ) and a sfx winrar exe file ( yellow square icon with like books poping out the top of it )

    both will have icons , if the exe file you download does not have an icon and is just a white square box, its more than likely its ether currupt or a virus

    lol, i would never click on an exe that was just the white box, if it doesnt have an icon i throw it straight away

    there are a few exceptions, but in the main they are not good at all

    its most likely to be a damaged file with missing info, unless its a dos file.

    re-download it and carryout a virus scan.
