SharePoint Blocks Some File Types

I tried to upload a batch of files to a document library, but I received an error message that says they were blocked by the administrator. What happened?

As a measure of protection from potentially dangerous files, SharePoint does not allow you to upload files to a SharePoint server if they are potentially executable; this determination is made on the basis of the file's extension. To work around this problem, change the file extension, or compress it using the Zip compression format before uploading. For more details about blocked file types, click Help on the SharePoint main menu bar, click Home, click Managing Lists and Libraries, and read the topics “About blocked file types” and “Configure blocked file types.”
