Try this 1

Click on the below hyperlink "Download" and download the file


First backup your registry by following the below instruction

"Registry Editor" will be opened. Click on File --> Export

Now extract the downloaded file --> Double click on that file --> Click on "Yes"

Now restart your PC

Thank you

Download the EXE registry fixes and copy it to the infected PC using a flash drive

For xp

Extract the zip file and launch the REG file


Windows 7

Launch the one which matches your OS

Click on YES

Now you should be able to execute EXE files
