Last night I downloaded the crysis sp demo & 3dmark06 from fileshack and this morning when I woke up (haha it takes that long to download!) I found that the files were not saved as executables on the desktop --just look like blank white sheets of paper? When I double click on them windows prompts me to choose a program to open the file?
I would just redownload but it takes forever!
Anyone out there ever run into this? I was thinking of manually trying the run the file from the cmd.exe window? (i'm at work now and I am trying to troubleshoot for when i get home) thanks!

Thanks for all of your replies purplerat-- You most certainly could be onto something. when I get home in a couple of hours I will download winrar and see if I can 'unzip' them. The thing is, I have downloaded several demos from fileshack and I have never had them save in this way. It has always saved as an .exe file on the desktop. Kinda weird?
Hi i have had the same thing happen to me aswell, it had me baffled for some time i was downloading crysis patches for the game and could not open the files im running vista 64 home premium vista told me to open with program from list dooh no go and im no geek, after much searching found nothing even rang microsoft but they wanted my money for help. so decided to go to file front and did download from there no problems so go some where ellse only solution at this stage. Something has changed at FILESHACK i think hope this helps some .Let me know if you find solution to this mystery problem i like filshack cheers Andre
