Hi Guys,

I often find ebook in .exe format, but when I double click nothing happened.
What application I need to open it?

Thank you.

You just double click on it as you would any other application. It will open its own little viewer with its own navigations. They are VERY easy to use.

Late,

Right click on the file, then select open with from the drop down. Select IE from the list of programs and select "always open this type of file"(I am on a Mac at the moment and don't remember the exact wording) at the bottom of the window and it will automatically open in IE next time.

Just a quick question. Where are you finding ebooks in .exe format? Most of my sources have them in .pdf, .pdb, .txt, .html and .lit.

Thanks

I don't think you have an ebook. If I were you, I would delete it and move on.

If you haven't already done so, I would also suggest that you run your anti-virus scan and adware scans.
