when I want to download a file from the internet it quite often tells me that this type of file could harm your computer if it contains malicious code. Would you like to open the file or save it to your computer.

Is it best not to download it or what?

Just a wake-up call for ANY executable file. If you are happy where it came from, and want the file, and have up to date virus protection, go for it.

Mandy, if you want the file, always save it to your hard drive then scan it with your anti virus before opening/running it. Do this no matter where the files come from.
