Unless it's a DOS rom, which comes WITH exe files that you shouldn't try to open by themselves.
But yeah, if it's just an EXE then it's a very clear sign that you've been to the shady part of town.

It used to be my ROM site of choice back in the early 2010s, but currently it's a load of rubbish. Most of the downloads are in exe format which is a clear indication of a virus, as the exe file installs the ROM on your PC but also brings viruses with it.
If you download a rom from a site but it's in exe format, delete it.
