How do I open up...

.exe and .zip folders? I don't think my mac came with a default program to open them up? Might sound like a noob question, but I'm still getting used to mac computers.

Thanks [:.

An ".exe" file is a Windows only application. You can't open them using a Mac OS X.
You can, however, open ".zip" files. Just double click them.
