Problem downloading software


Today I tried to download some software and I received a message saying :
"Save as PDF & XPS.exe is not a valid Win32 application"
What does this mean and how can I fix it ?

Thanks, Mickmac

I have a feeling you might be infected with some type of malware.

Are you having issues with other .exe files you try to download?

You may be infected. Will be good to run a full scan with Malwarebytes.
Also install Microsoft Security Essentials as antivirus.
