preventing probing for the .exe when launching from a href

If i create a simple windows form .exe then launch it via a href, why does
the .net framework/iis search in multiple places and for multiple files
derived from the actual .exe name. ( most of which don't exist )

eg;
2005-03-01 04:47:35 10.2.5.229 GET
/Components/Softix.Platform.Application.Startup.exe - 80 - 10.2.5.232 200 0 0
16621 314 15
2005-03-01 04:47:40 10.2.5.229 GET
/Components/Softix.Platform.Application.Startup.DLL - 80 - 10.2.5.232 404 0 2

2005-03-01 04:47:40 10.2.5.229 GET

/Components/Softix.Platform.Application.Startup.exe - 80 - 10.2.5.232 304 0 0

Is there anyway to stop this behaviour ?
