I accidently edited some of the registry keys of the exe extension and now none of the exe file is opening. I cant open any application. Even the regedit.exe is not working, let alone other apps.so please help asap.

Have you tried this route?

3. Open the Start Menu.
A) Click on All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and System Restore, and go to step 6 below. (see screenshot

I am interested to know why you found it necessary to edit the Registry in the first place?

Well you certainly should always back up the original reg whenever you get a new machine or clean install unless the restore works then the sfc is worth a shot plus this but I wouldn't be holding my breath for long.
