If you can't access the Internet with the problem computer use another computer to download the reg file fix onto a CD, thumb drive, or floppy and transfer the file to the problem computer.

After that .reg file is merged into the registry successfully restart your computer.

All of these fixes require me to run a file with a .exe extension. What is it about the fact that whenever I try to open a .exe file the the next screen wants to know what program I want to use to open it. I need to know how to fix this without trying to open a .exe extension file.
