.exe files in Windows 7 will not open
I can no longer open .exe files in Windows 7 using a 64 bit computer. I have already tried restoring to an earlier date and also tried the MS Fix it option and neither has fixed my problem. I really don't want to do a reformat and its my last resort. Can you help me fix this? Thank you.

What happens when you try to open a .EXE?

If you doubleclick a Word Document, does Word open? Or if you doubleclick a .TXT file, does Notepad open? Or if you doubleclick on any other type of file, does it's associated program open?

yes all open o.k except the .exe files. .exe isn't even in the Default Program list where you associate files with the correct programs. There is one that says .ex- but no .exe.
