Windows 7: I am unable to run most of the .exe files I download.

If nothing works, I think your only choice is to do a clean install of Windows. Try running sfc /examine.
SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker
After that, try restarting and see if the problem is solved. Please tell me what cmd shows while running the command.

In my opinion you don't need all those things in Startup.

Blocked?

If you check the Properties of a file that doesn't run, does it have the option to "Unblock" it at the bottom of the window?
