Please download exeHelper from one of these two places:

Save it to your Desktop

Vista or Windows 7 users right click the downloaded file and select “Run as Administrator"
XP users, double-click on the downloaded file to run the program

A black window should pop up
Press any key to close, once the fix is completed.

>>Please post the contents of the exehelperlog.txt in your reply.<<
[It is created in the directory where you ran exeHelper, and should also open at the end of the scan.]

When exeHelper finishes, restart your computer.

See if you can run .exe files now.

Thanks guys,

I downloaded MALWAREBYTES and ran a scan against c: drive...

The software discovered that my computer was infected by a malware called Hijack.Exefile. My computer are back to normal after removing the virus.

Thanks for your help.
