I have installed PHP 4 with Apache, and when I try and run a php page, the browser prompts me to download the file instead of running the script.

In your config-file (httpd.conf) for the apache webserver you will need 
to add:
ScriptAlias /php/ "c:/Program Files/Apache/php/"
(or whereever you have your php.exe-file)
AddType application/x-httpd-php3 .php .php3
AddType application/x-httpd-php3-source .phps
Action application/x-httpd-php3 "/php/php.exe"
I'm not sure of what php4 need, since I'm just running php3 (and are 
pleased with that!).
