Default Help..."not valid Win32 application" cannot execute

Just got my notebook with Vista. Everytime I try to download something it downloads fine, but when I try to run, it says "not a valid Win32 application".

I have tried downloading and running 3 programs with the same problem, the most recent was "Daemon Tool lite"

The downloads are either corrupted somehow(not likely with several), incompatible with Vista being written for XP or another previous version of Windows(more likely), potential virus(never can rule out), or there is some type of hardware incompatibility problem of some type.

The version of Daemon Tool Lite was probably written strictly for XP or the 64bit edition of Vista unless specified otherwise.

Got it fixed. after doing some searching it seems to be a very commoin problem. Back in June or July, MicroGod put out a patch for it. Downloaded it and it fixed my problem.
