I'm having a bit of a problem.

I'm running Windows Vista (home premium) on an Acer 8930G

I've had it for a couple of months and its been fine.

However, recently, whenever I open ANY .exe file, i get an error message reading:
"filename.exe is not a valid win32 application."

I cant find any fix, and its really driving me insane.

I've tried system restore a few times, and it hasnt worked.

Thanks in advance.

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around
