Filter execuable (.exe) files

How can I set a project template to skip downloading of ".exe" files. I was downloading a web site and I noticed that it was taking rather long. When I looked at the section with the channels, I noticed that it was downloading a couple of ".exe" files. I tried to stop them by going to the queue, but the queue only showed the number of URLs without providing a list. I know you can filter out archives and other specific types, but I don`t see any option for executables. Any suggestion on how I can implement this filter? Much appreciated.

I would suggest you to add the .exe extension to the File Filters | Archive list and uncheck the category to disable loading such files.

This is the easiest way.
