When I downloaded maps yesterday they downloaded as zip files with the name being 'nazi_zombie_[map name]'. Today they seem to have changed to setup.zip, containing a setup.exe files (including maps I downloaded yesterday). I assume this is some way to make installation of maps easier, however I have a problem. Running the exe gives me and error message:

Run-time error '75':
Path/File access error

And does nothing else. Does anyoe else have this issue? How might I fix it?
Thanks

looking into it now, to my knowledge there is no setup.exe so anyone else downloading maps, don't run any setup.exe file!

I guess the moral of the story is don't run EXE files unless you know what they are. Common sense is all you need to be virus-wise!

well the problem is, people need to be not so trusting. Understandably, users would expect anything downloaded from this site to be virus free. I think we do have some downloads which are exe's like the cod5 patches, but scan all downloads with an antivirus program just to be safe.

Anything I host from this site will always be uploaded virus free but I can't guarentee files downloaded by users won't be infected. So scan them first before you do anything!
