Hello Jeepers,

See if downloading and merging this REG file below may help you. It restores the default associations for the EXE file extention type. You may need to restart afterwards to apply though.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Jeepers,

You can try and see if doing a System Restore using a restore point dated before this happend may be able to fix it for you.
