Open With and Application Not Found Error

I've been having a few problems with my computer and I'm hoping someone may be able to help me.

So, whenever I click on an .exe file I get a window that says 'Open With'. Some files I can still open even in spite of the window, though some I cannot. For other applications such as messanger, calculator, etc, I get a window that says 'Application Not Found'.

I ran a scan and it found nothing. I tried the fix.reg and another .reg file that was said to work to no avail. Everytime I try to get a .reg to work it says 'Windows cannot access the specifed device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access this item'.

Can anyone help?
