After cleaning some virus and deletion of all temp files, I run into a problem that I can't seem to run any exe program from windows. It complains that it can't find the specific exe file, but it is actually there. I went into safe mode with command prompt, and was able to run the same program in the specific directory within the command window. I searched some of the website and looks like seems to be the solution for me, however I can't seem to find anywhere to download as it was old Please explain the overhead between windows and command prompt and how I can fix my problem here.

Many thanks,

Go to the link below and scroll down to line 12 (left column) and click on "EXE (lnk and regfile) Fix for Windows XP" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt.

If you can't run the file do the following:
Press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter. Once regedit is open click File>Import and locate that reg file fix, hilite it and click Open.
