I have sent an exe file to a friend. I renamed it to txt to get past outlook security.

When he put it on his desktop and renamed it to exe, it would not open. Windows denied permission. He has not had this happen with other progs. Why might this be?

Probably have to take ownership of that. Probably similar to term_x's win7 error post

He may need to "Unblock it" since it came from another location

Right Click it>Properties>Unblock this file

Oh, and BTW next time use something like www.yousendit.com
