When I try to download any thing of any sort it gives me this weird folder and it doesn't install or go on my computer. I am not sure how to fix it. Please help?

It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, see the FAQ.
It sounds like you are trying to install Windows software.
Windows software doesn't work on Linux, unless you first install a program that helps it pretend to be Windows.
The "weird folder" is probably the software installer being opened as an archive.
Instead of downloading Windows software, why not browse the Software Centre application and try to find a piece of software that does what you want?
