  • Hello, what kind of file is this (what is downloaded)? Windows Phone does support only some file type such JPG, PDF and Microsoft Office Documents and others. Special files can be viewed or stored on SkyDrive.

    In what URL do you see this error, maybe page is trying automatically download some content (EXE, JavaSript or else)?
