file not allowed to be downloaded.

Specs: Windows 7
I am using 'Openoffice.org', but when I try to open the programme, get a message telling me "your security settings do not allow this file to be downloaded" ? How do I resolve this?

If you are running IE9 or higher this is an issue due to Microsoft's security paranoia that does not allow to download .exe (and other files). Ignore the message and at the bottom of screen continue to push the button for downloading until the request is accepted. Then you have to highlight the file and right click selecting Properties. Rename _exe to .exe and push the button to remove the block. The file can now to be accessed.

What I posted applies to Internet Explorer and made me crazy, if you are facing another issue, sorry I have wasted your time.
