Website not working

My website was working file, until i downloaded a plugin. It was getting activated, but before it does error occurred and the website stopped working. On refreshing, all it shows is a downloading file popup. And when i click on download, a php file gets downloaded.

The message that php file contains is:

* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
* @package WordPress

* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
* @var bool
define( 'WP_USE_THEMES', true );

/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
require __DIR__ . '/wp-blog-header.php';

I tried restarting wampserver, and opening website again, but none of the pages work. All it shows is this popup for downloading this file.

It would be really helpful if someone can help me out with this issue.
Thanks much in advance.
