    Try this fix: EXEFIX

    Save the .reg file to your desktop. Double-click it to merge it to the registry.

    Reboot.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    Click on EXEFIX.

    Save it to your desktop.

    Once saved to your desktop, double-click it and it will merge to the registry automatically.

    If the fix only opens as a text file, right-click it and select Open With > Choose Program... Then, select the Registry Editor.

    If the Registry Editor is not in the list, browse to C:\WINDOWS and select regedit.

    Don't forget to reboot the computer after applying the fix.
