Some malware infections target .exe files and without repairing that file association ALL .exe files will lose functionality.

If you are unable to run any .exe applications, please see:
"Unable to Start a Program with an .exe File Extension"
"Broken EXE Association Fix"
"Fix or Restore Broken .EXE .LNK .COM Association Caused by Virus"
Note: Some of these steps involve making changes in the registry. Always back up your registry before making any changes. If you are not familiar with working in the registry, then you should NOT attempt to make any changes on your own. Improper changes to the registry could adversely affect your computer and render it inoperable.

Post back and let us know if that worked.

Click on the text highlighted in blue in my previous posts. These are links that will provide more information or explain in detail what to do.

The Windows registry is a central repository (database) for storing configuration data, user settings and machine-dependent settings, and options for the operating system. It contains information and settings for all hardware, software, users, and preferences. Whenever a user makes changes to settings, file associations, system policies, or installed software, the changes are reflected and stored in this repository. The registry is a crucial component because it is where Windows "remembers" all this information, how it works together, how Windows boots the system and what files it uses when it does. The registry is also a vulnerable subsystem, in that relatively small changes done incorrectly can render the system unbootable.
