JSI Tip 0556 - Do you have problems downloading .EXE files?

If you can't download .EXE files, it may be that that the EditFlags at

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile is incorrectly set. Using Regedt32, the data in this REG_BINARY
value should look like xx xx 00 xx where xx is any value. If it is set to xx xx 01 xx, change it.
