Hello Alejandroteen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

Downloading and merging the EXE option in the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default association for .exe files.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

To be safe, I would also recommend that you do a full scan of your system with Malwarbytes free to see if it finds any malware or viruses on your system.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for your help, I LNK & Folder (REG) but none of them worked. Should I pick another .reg?

Next step is the antimalware.

Thanks a lot !

When did you first notice this problem? You may want to consider using system restore to a time before you had the problem.

If necessary, you may need to run this from a command prompt to fix system files.

sfc /scannow

Yes I did. And it is not working, the malware is running and until now it detected 2 objects.

I notice it 2 days ago. And yesterday I wanted to open the Donwload folder and it wont open.

You may just need to remove the bad Downloads link under Favorites in the Navigation Pane, and restore the default "Downloads" link to restore a hopefully working one back.

Did you remove the detected items found by Malwarebytes?

Are you getting this error when trying to open any other file, folder, or shortcut?

You might also try what Hunter posted above as well for now to see if that may help.
