Inside the control panel: the Folder Options> File types tab> I messed with the exe file type and now when I try to open any ("file name").exe files, a box opens: telling me "WIndows cannot open this file:" To open this file, Windows need to know what program created it... What do you want to do? -Use the Web Service to find the appropoate program -Select the program from a list" In the File types tab, I can't find the exe file type listing and I don't know what information to add for adding an new one.
