    Hi, I'm new here, so I don't know if this is the right area to post in.

    I'm running OS X 10.5.8

    So, after Limewire shut down, I tried to download Frostwire. When it opens, it says I'm trying to open a binary file. A few other applications that I've tried to download ie; java updates have also tried to open as a binary file. I've never had this problem before. I don't know why out of the blue, I can't download from the internet.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thx!:)

    Hmmm...100 views, and no one can help me out? Just encountered another binary file issue again tonight. Tried to download a game, and again, when I tried to download it, it said "you are trying to download a binary file"...

    Can anyone point me in a direction where I might get some help with this issue?

    Thanks so much!

    Ok, so besides the frostwire, it still is happening with updates and legal downloads. Tough crowd.
