    Wasnt sure what section to put this in but anyhow. I have been downloading .cab files for my Windows based phone and sometimes they download as .exe files as they should but many times they just download as a .php document and I cant do anything with it. Any guess as to why or how to make it download as a .exe file all the time?

    I have run into similar problems with some downloads. You may want to try renaming them .exe sometimes that happens. Otherwise it may just not be following the links correctly and then you end up with the reference page (atleast that is what I think it is called) and it could be a problem with the site you are downloading from.
