What kind of file have you downloaded.
Is it an achive file like ZIP, RAR, ARJ, LHA or whatsoever?
You might have to install a special program to open e.g. RAR files.
E.g.
If the file has the extension .RAR, and WinRAR or any other program that can handle RAR files is not installed, a window will pop up and asks on how to open it.

Can you execute the files, when you saved them, by navigating to these files as you do when opening any other document?

You may have to rightclick the download link and choose save. Ever tried that.
