Some files do. I had the same problem yesterday. Is it all of them? What do you use? Windows... what did you try to download?

There could be a problem with the source. Is it possible to try another way?

What is the file extension for the file you are downloading.

It maybe that that extension is associated with the wrong program (in this case Word)

In Explorer go to Tools > Folder Options >File Types

Scroll down the list and see what program the extension is associated with.
