I accidentally changed the default program to open exe files to notepad ..!!!
then every thing is messed up...!! i can't even open an internet browser normally ..!!
i don't know where this EXE launcher exist on the computer to set it back the same way ..
Go to the link below and follow the instructions there (ie. download the .reg file they posted and right click on it afterwards and select merge ) -- This is a small file that will reset the default program used to open .exe files back to the original setting and should fix things for you !
Omg I'm so glad I found this, everywhere people talked about viruses and I knew it was just me that had accidentally setted internet explorer to open every exe file. Imagine google chrome being opened by internet explorer... I was going nuts. Thank you very much!
