Okay okay, so this is what's going on. I have a worm... I get rid of said worm and go through the procedures to clean up the worm. One of the tasks was to run the registry editor, go to HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT and change the default for the value type of .exe to "%1" %*. now certain programs won't execute, which makes me think this screwed something up, but I can't remember the original default value type. I was wondering if someone knew it for WindowsME. Thanks! :D

Running win98se and these are my default values. I would not think that these would change from system to system.

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe "exefile

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile "application"

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\DefaultIcon "%1"

What Sunbaby is referring to, is the deafult value date for HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command

It's "%1" %*

However, the Exefix will rebuild the entire key, which is the best and safest way to restore the defaults.
