Hello thefort18, and welcome to Seven Forums.

See if downloading and merging the .reg files for the listed .exe and .lnk (LNK) options in the tutorial below may be able to help. It will restore the default associations for these file extensions.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
Shawn
