Cannot Open exe files

I already tried using System Restore and Default File Type Associations Restore but it still doesn't open my programs? And yes, I am an administrator. I would appreciate any help.

Hello aic, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Are you sure that it's not shortcuts (LNK file extensions) that are not opening for you instead of EXE files?
