How to run execute files on client machines?

As PHP is a server-side scripting language, there's no way for that to 
access your computer.  All it does is spit out HTML.  The only thing I 
can think of that's even remotely similar is setting the location 
header to the file you want running, then *ask* the client to run it 
instead of saving it.
Think of the trouble that would be caused if servers could start 
running things on your pc :)
format c: anyone?
