A file with an executable file extension means that the file format supports some ability to run
additional automatic tasks. This means that if you open a file with one of these file extensions, your Windows
PC could, without your continued permission, run any number of additional operations programmed into that file.

Those operations could be welcome if you were to run a program setup for a software application you just
downloaded. Those operations could be damaging if you were to run a virus
infected executable file attached to an email from an unknown source.

You should always avoid opening executable files from suspicious emails or websites. Even if you are very comfortable
about the source of an executable file, you should always exercise caution and common sense before opening.
