Download to root directory

  mikeo56 18:10 28 Nov 04

I just downloaded a file, a zip file, which when opened is an exe. Installed it is a sheet optimizer app (a carpentry program). I have never downloaded a file which I had no control over where on the hard drive it would be downloaded to and then to find it was downloaded to the root directory. I deleted it before unzipping it. Is this an unusual situation? Any comments on the file going to the root directory? Adware????
