Please Help! Can't open .exe files

April 21, 2010 at 21:16:21
Specs: Windows Vista
Whenever I try to open any .exe files I get a popup saying please choose a program to open with. This goes for new downloads as well at programs on my start menu and desktop such as calculator, clock, etc.
I'm not the most computer savvy so thanks for any help!

Seems to be a lot of that going around. Check Tufenuf's link here:

I tried this but the problem is once the fix program is downloaded I can't run it! Can't access regedit either...

Looks like you install it using the merge option.

If it's zipped and you can't unzip it on that computer then use a different computer and burn the extracted REG file to a cd or copy to a floppy or flash drive--whatever the ailing computer can use. Then follow the 'usage instructions' on the download

Edit You did download ExeFix_Vista.zip, right? And not their so-called 'recommended download' which has nothing to do with fixing the problem.
