Hello Hisashi, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading the .reg file for the listed EXE option in the tutorial below may be able to fix this for you. It will restore the default associations and registry entries for EXE files.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
