Nasty little irritation on XP (SP2).
I can't open .EXE files. Updates from Adobe flash, CCleaner, etc, download to desktop but when I try to open or run them, I just get the eggtimer for a few seconds, then nothing. Anyone got a sure-fire, (preferably simple) way of correcting this?
Needless to say, I've run all the scans, (Malwarebytes, ESET, ADW and Housecall) and everything comes up clean.
I suspect a registry corruption.
Any help greatly appreciated.
