sounds like a file association problem.

or search for windows 7 file association fix .exe and it will give you other options.

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"

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

>>Please post the contents of the exehelperlog.txt<<
[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.

The way things are going with malware, sometimes things work, sometimes they don't!! ;-)

The more options we provide the User, the better off they are.

If the file associations got fixed, exeHelper will reflect that. Don't think it will try to fix them again.
