I am trying to update and fix a computer for my partner. I am not the best with computers, but not stupid either. I have loaded all of the microsoft service packs, updates, and patch that I was instructed to load from microsoft update. Now when I try and open any file or program with .exe a message box appears asking me to choose the program i want to us to open this file. Can anyone help me fix this problem? I have trend pc-chillin as my virus protection, i have found worms on this computer and when i try to run trend to fix the problems i also receive the same box, of course because it is a .exe file. So please help ASAP. I don't know what to do

thanks Laura

Start by trying this fix.

Download Kellys Exe Fix

It is a REG file. Select it and double click to merge it into the registry.

If this works, immediately run a virus scan to confirm you are clean. This error generally occurs after a virus has been removed, but the registry entries have not been corrected.
