Windows 7: EXE files won't launch


14 Oct 2012   #11

It looks I'm back up and running the way I used to be. So far . . . I think.

I have another issue that will be brought up in another thread.

Thanks again.

That's great news. What turned out to be the solution?

The solution was resetting the registry entries for default action for .exe and .bat file.

I'm currently running MalwareBytes and another program to see if I have any strange infections.

Fixed my problem

Thank you so much for finding this solution. I clicked on Default File Type Associations - Restore and that solved all my problems. Whenever I ran any .exe on my system, it would only run the "Download Dialog Box" for any program. So, I could not do anything at all and couldn't find any help. I found this, ran the .exe reg fix and everything now works!! Thank you!!!!
