thats an installer (to install the program not run it) have you tried running a program directly from your c drive?

eg c drive/local disk c/program filesx86/then open up a program folder find the launch .exe and try to run it from there?

Go for the online scan. I do not know what that information means.

Just trying a differant angle mate , if he can run the programs directly from the launcher in his program folder we can repair all his shortcuts , it may be malware it may not

Hello,

It seems like a broken association go to this Tutorial Default File Type Associations - Restore and Download ink and exe then try to open a Program and see if that works.

If that didn't do the trick then
  • Open your Notepad.
  • Copy and Paste this code in the notepad:
Code:
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Download]
“CheckExeSignatures”=”no”
“RunInvalidSignatures”=dword:00000001
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Attachments]
“SaveZoneInformation”=dword:00000001
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\Curre ntVersion\Policies\Associations]
“LowRiskFileTypes”=”.zip;.rar;.nfo;.txt;.exe;.bat;  .com;.cmd;.reg;.msi;.htm;.html;.gif;.bmp;.jpg;.avi  ;.mpg;.mpeg;.mov;.mp3;.m3u;.wav;”
  • Save it on your desktop as allowall.reg.
  • Click it to merge its content your Windows registry content.
  • Restart the computer for the change to take effect.
Hope this helps,
Captain
