    After downloading and saving an exe file from an internet site extension jpg is added so that file appears as filename.exe.jpg. This just recently started on my XP so I have done something to add the jpg file extension. If I rename the file without the jpg extension everything works fine. What have I done and how do I correct it?

    Apparently only on downloaded exe files, which is the majority (about five or six). So far not on zip files (about three).
