To use FixExec to fix your file associations, simply download the 32-bit version of the program or the 64-bit version to a location that you have write access to. A good location to download this file is your Windows desktop. Once the file is downloaded, simply run the program, accept the license, and let it go to work. The program will first terminate any programs that are launched from locations that are known to be used by Malware. It will then repair your .bat, .exe, and .com file extensions so that these types of programs can launch again.
If you attempt to run FixExec.exe and the program is quickly terminated or you receive an alert from a computer virus, simply rename the FixExec.exe file to FixExec.com. In order to properly rename the file you must make sure you have Windows configured to view file extensions. To enable this, please follow the steps in this guide:
