    That you didn't tell us enough to answer the question...

    What sort of file, from where?

    A blind guess would be that you tried to open an unsupported video file.

    Safari cannot download files. (another simple thing that apple should allow it to do)

    You will have to use a 3rd party browser from the AppStore.

    Try iCab, this allows up and downloading. Alternatively you could try something like Downloads HD.

    Well you should check in the app's description to see if it supports it.

    .exe files are self executing windows (or DOS) files. They will not run in the iOS environment.

    Well.......that depends on the apps that you have installed, some apps read PDF's, some apps read .doc, some apps read .xls, etc, etc.

    It's going to be far easier for you to tell us what file types that you want it to read.
