Zakk,
  You *really* need to post more info...what is it you are
downloading? A file? What extension? (eg, .zip, .exe, .tar, ect)
How are you attempting to "look" at it? What are you attempting
to "open" the file WITH? I`m REALLY curious why an attempt to
view a file would result in a system backup?!? I`m at a loss as
to why you would need to back-up a file in order to be able to
view/open it?? Please elaborate and post more information.

Whatever Zakk is trying to open has an association with backup.exe!  Also, when you double-click a *.set file, it runs backup.exe (.set files are backup sets, which normally ARE associated with backup.  When he describes what the extension of the downloaded file is, we should be able to help him find the association and fix it.

Go to Windows Explorer --> View --> Options --> File Types...
Locate the SET or Microsoft backup item... Delete it... Then, when you click on as SET file, it will ask you what you want to open it with... Chose your pgroam and away you go...

Mark,

You have attempted to take my comment and make an answer out of it.  However, you got it backwards!  The file Zakk is clicking on is NOT a .set file or he would not be getting the error message he mentioned above.  He has another association to backup.exe other than .set files and, until we know what that other extension is, we can't help him create the correct association.

Zakk...we really need some more information.
