I think I'm missing something here,
If you click Start, All Programs, and Accessories, you should see CMD.EXE
Right click it and select - Run as Administrator,
Type CD\ to put you in the Root directory where you should be able to use
your EXE files.
If downloading your file is the problem, type - Download files - on the
search line above the start button.
The file should show up there, where you can double click it to run.
Sorry if this doesn't help
