    i recently tried to download a game off of limewire, and when i opened it, it went right to quicktime and said something like "this file is not a movie." I even tried the stuffit expander, but nothing works. Is there a certain application to download? HELLPPPP.

    Wierd. Try making sure it's not a double extension.
    For example or something.
    Do you hide file extensions by default?

    well, you know on limewire how there's lots of things to choose from! i chose all the ones with the same title and the same thing happens i'm so confused lol. after i put the downloaded file into stuffit, it makes a new folder called "setup" and that's an .exe file. when i try to open that, it goes to quicktime, it's really annoying.

    Sounds pretty suspicious... You won't be needing any of those pesky .exe files anyway.
