Don't believe that there is any .exe files being downloaded to your PC unless you have a malware already infecting your PC. There is none coming from this site, only cookies which are needed by registered users so that we log on everytime we open up their pages without having to type it in.

I will let you know the name of the file when it next happens.
It is really only happening when I am browsing this site.
