Registering an ocx error

I have an ocx file that I get an error that says:  "simple.ocx is not an executable file and no registration helper is registered for this file type."  I have registered many ocx files before but this is the first ocx that has given me this error.  Does anyone have any suggestions?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This Error Occours when that file is not an  ocx File.
When you rename some other file to .ocx then trying to register this file will give the same error
