It is not possible from within IE, but there are ways outside but can be
complicated for a novice user
1) use a proxy that supports filtering such as CCProxy and set IE's proxy to
CCProxy. Add filter to CCProxy to disable download of EXE files.
2) set filters on the router to forbid such requests, this is only supported
by some routers (possibly the Linksys models, but I am not sure about this)
3) install a firewall which prevents exe downloads, this should be easy, but
I can't offhand recall any software which provides this feature
You may want to pop into a software store and ask for a software which does
this for you easily as the above can be complicated.
