Non 7z archive error when installing latest NVidia update 337.88 - WHQ

Whenever I try to install it I get this window popping up saying ''Non 7z archive.

Anyone know why this isn't working?

It appears you have set your file associations for .exe to open up with 7zip, you can fix this by going to default programs under the start menu, set your default programs and choose 7zip from the list there, choose defaults for this program, and unselect .exe from the list in there. restart and you should be good.

I don't see any options in there. I looked under Set your default programs and there is nothing in there that says 7zip or .exe. Same with Associate a file or protocol with a program.

it also says I just noticed that the program doesn't have a digital signature to verify it's publisher, should I be worried about that?

It turns out that the first update didn't download properly, only about half the file size was there, not sure what happened there, maybe I closed the browser down before it was complete without realising(?) Anyway, it has now been installed.
