    Hi all
    My .exe files don't work anymore. Can someone please advise on how to resolve this problem?

    Hi and welcome.

    Try this: EXEFIX

    Unzip the fix and extract the .REG file to the desktop. Right click the .REG file and choose Merge. Note: You need to be an Administrator to apply this fix.

    Reboot the computer.

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

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