Cannot Run .exe Files

Since yesterday i have been unable to open any .exe programs on my windows 7 computer. I have read numerous questions and possible solutions for this, but none has worked.

I get an error window saying:

These files can't be opened
Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened

I have read about editing the registry but it hasn't worked. I cannot restore windows 7, as i have found out i have no restore points (oops).

I have run a full scan of my system with ms security essentials, and found nothing.

Can anyone help? If you need more details, let me know.

Additional info:
-
- I cannot for example open notepad.exe. But i can open a txt file and it will open in notepad.

- Same goes for firefox, ie and opera. Can't open the browsers directly, but if i run an html file and choose "open with" it will open in the desired browser.

- My ms security essentials doesn't run on startup (non of my startup programs do), but i can right-click a file and choose to scan it with msse and it will open and scan.

Run Exe File Issue

Windows 7: when i try to run exes it asks me to "choose program", says it can't verify signature of ms download. I just installed windows 7 and now when i try to run exes (e.g. , I just download an anti-virus program) it ask me to choose a program to open the file. Not sure it  it's related, but i then tried to download mss anti-virus and for that it tells me that it can't verify the digital signature for the file and will not open it (it continues that "a recent hardware or software change may have installed a file that is incorrect or damaged. "). So i can't seem to install anything right now

Unable To Run .exe File Type Problem

Would like to delete dos mode, i operate a "windows 7 home premium" laptop. A few days ago i was attempting to download an updated version of'adobe flash player' which never seemed to complete. It seemed directly after being at the adobe site that any time i try to open an exe file (executable), the file is sent to wordpad in 'dos mode'. I have never came across this situation before. My son-in-law came by last night and tried to run some kind of program off a usb stick, and he said, 'it would run'. After he left i was able to get on the internet, but still have the problem with exe type files.

.exe Files Programs Problem

I accidentally set my computer so it will run .exe files with windows media center. I cannot seem to find a way to undo this problem. This makes launching programs impossible. I've seen other posts here, but none of the solutions i've seen seem to help. Since i cannot launch .exe files, i am unable to use cmd or notepad. I have tried assigning .exe files to a program and then uninstalling/deleting a file, but that also did not work. I do not want to do a system restore, since it's been a long time since i've created a restore point.

How To Run Xp Programs In Win7?

I have just bought w7 professional and luckily before installing i was advised to check my existing programmes. I have found that a large number of programmes i use day-to-day are not compatible or not tested, as they are more than 3 years old etc. Upgrading these programmes is not an option - they are ones built up over 10 years of web designing and to go through and purchase all upgrades to latest versions would cost be over £10k!Ie i use dreamweaver mx 2004 as it is suitable for my needs as i mostly hard code, so don't want to/can't afford to upgrade to cs4 web at over £1500.

And that's just one programme! I can't find any info on fireworks or other graphic programmes i use - even though they were all 'big names' when i got the software!What is the procedure about running in xp mode? How easy is this, and it is any better than just keeping my xp version and not going with windows 7 at allny advice welcome - my pc is my income so i don't want to erase everything only to find it's been a waste of time!

Cannot Run Programs After Updates

On 17th downloaded and installed updates, service pack 2 for windows, service pack 2 for office 2007, update kb967642 for office, 5 security updates for office, silver light, after this i found that all installed widows games ie. Solitair, spider etc: would not run, error message executable for xxx game has stopped working. This happened on a previous occasion and after contacting the supplier of my pc we finished up carrying out a factory setting restore which removed all installed programmes.

I do not wish to do this as i have only had the pc since january 2009 and already carried out 2 factory resets for similar reasons. I have also now had a failure with an audio editing program which has load but on importing a music file the programme closes. I uninstalled all the updates except office service pack2 and update kb 967642 both of which did not give the option to uninstall in programs and features which had no effect on the games.

I have uninstalled the software for the audio program and reinstalled from the program cd but i still have the same problem. I could not carry out a restore as there were no restore points prior to the update install. The factory reset was carried out on the 11may2009 which is the date when the complete system was updated. My os is vista home premium, acer aspire m3201, amd phenom(tm) 9150e quad-core processor 1. 80ghz. Ati radeon hd 3200 graphics on board, realtek audio manager. Is there any way of restoring these items and any other programs that i have not used yet and may be effected? I am only a basic user with non/very little technical knowledge.

Several Programs Wont Run Properly

Since installing windows 7 i have been having problems getting the following software to work correctly (or at all). Paint - crashes when the file manager dialogue opens (e.g. When you go to save your work - very annoying).

Itunes - won't run at all - double click on the icon, the eggtimer appears for a couple of seconds then nothing (it appears in task manager for about ten seconds then vanishes). Notepad - same symptoms as paint.google desktop - numerous features do not work at all (including sidebar which says its running but its not).

Epson scan - driver and scan utility will not install, rendering my new all-in-one printer partly useless. Fuji finepix viewer and camera connection utility - bsod when i plug the camera into the usb. Tom tom home - same symptoms as itunes but with an error message telling me to re-install (i have several times without success).

Winrar - will only launch under certain circumstances e.g. It will run if i click "extract here" but not if i click "exract to. ". I have completely uninstalled and reloaded all of the above (with the exception of notepad and paint), ensured that i am installing the latest version and followed guidance on numerous software specific websites and forums.

I have made sure that my pc is fully updated and that i have all of the latest drivers. I have also run a basic repair - just to check the file integrity of the windows system files and so far, nothing has worked. I don't really want to re-install windows as i see that as an ultimate last resort, i managed to get around all sorts of horrendous problems on xp without ever once re-installing. I'm fairly sure that there is something fundamentally wrong with my system, i'm just not sure where to start looking any suggestions anyone?

Programs Dont Run In Win 7

I am having a problem with windows-7. I have done a upgrade from vista and found that was a mistake. I did a reinstall as a dual boot because i still needed vista to run the programs that would not run in windows-7. I found that windows-7 is a bigger problem than vista. I had to do a download to run my hp printer that i bought in january of this year. I still cant run my hp photosmart 812 camera. The software won't load. I can't get microsoft age of empires-2 to run with good graphic.

I have about four more that will only run while i am in vista. I have written to hp and they have no plans to update their software. I ran the windows-7 adviser and my computer passed. If i had it to do over, i would not have gone to windows-7 from vista. I have not found any reason to change to windows-7. I am going back to vista and just write this off as a bad experience.

Run Install Win98 Programs

I have a windows xp machine, a vista business machine, and a windows 7 hp machine. I have several windows 98 programs that work perfectly for my needs and do not want to upgrade or repurchase newer versions (mathematica, autocad lt 98, matlab, adobe illustrator 8, etc. ). These all work perfectly on my xp machine. If i upgrade my vista and 7 hp machines to windows 7 professional, with virtual pc and xp mode, can i install (my vista and 7 hp machines will not acknowledge or read the installation cd's for these programs) and run these programs? This is my only reason for upgrading to 7 professional on these machines.

Gui To Run Fortran Programs

I hope to get help in solving my i/o issues when trying to run my fortran program after having compiled and linked my programs using microsoft visual studio 2008, version 9. 0. 21022. 8 rtm . I have a pc with the following specifications:

Running windows 7 enterprise
Processor: intel® core, ¢ 2 duo cpu p8800 @ 2. 66 ghz 2. 67 ghz
4 gb ram
64-bit operating system
No pen or touch input is available for the display

Im applying microsoft visual studio 2008 from intel to compile and link my programs.compiling, linking and running the program is without any problem. Im seeking a command file, gui, which will do the following:

1. Start a series of commands with file handling and execute a fortran program (.exe).

2. The command file (gui) should ask the user for a root file name, which should then be read.

3. The command file should deleting existing result files containing this root name (the suffix of various file names are fixed for a program). In addition, establish new result files that the program may write to. The folder address where the input files may be found must also be put in place. The results files should be placed where the input files are located.

4. Allocate all files (input and output) to the various file unit specified in the fortran code open statement. How can this best be done? Presently i have to specify the address and file name in the open statement and establish a new .exe program every time i want to use a different input file name. On a unix version of my code i make a call to the getenv routine.

5.execute the .exe file.

How To Run 16-bit Programs On Win 7?

I have to be able to run a 16 bit cad program. I had vista and replaced it with xp. Got w7 and it is much better than vista but still can't get the program to run on it. Virtual pc will run the program but access to the physical drive is so slow that it is not acceptable. For instance to run a routine (which is why i have to have the 16 bit program) takes 12 seconds in xp and 1min 20 sec on w7 via virtual pc.

Is there a way to do this?
Is ms going to address this if not?
Or do i dump w7 and stay with xp?

Run Programs From Search Window

Interesting dilemma. When i search for an exe from the search menu (bottom of start menu), the search response comes up with the location where the files are, but not the executable itself.

Example: click start, type "cmd"

What should happen: the cmd executable shows up as a result, and then you can click and run it.

What does happen: the search result is "programs". When i click on that, i get a windows security pop-up that indicates "these files can't be opened" your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened. "

I'm not sure why the internet security settings are affecting this at all, and i'm not sure what to change in the settings to allow the os to run the files from the search bar.

Any ideas?

Unable To Open Or Run Virtually Programs After Windows Update

Unable to open or run virtually all programs after windows update kb976002 'browser chooser' was automatically installed. I had, clearly unwisely, allowed windows updates to be installed automatically. An update installed itself on 15 mar 2010, kb976002 calling itself browser chooser.

It cannot be uninstalled and from reading other forums i gather it could be something that has been forced in by the eu. Its purpose is probably to allow users of two or more internet browsers to choose how they employ them, but ever since it installed itself i have been unable to open or run most other programs including ms office, skype, itunes, while others can only be opened if selected to be so as an administrator. If i could, i would uninstall this update. Any similar faults out there?

Windows 64-bit Keeps Trying To Run 32-bit Version Programs

Windows 64 bit version keeps trying to run a 32 bit version to run internet from different programs. I updated my sony laptop to windows 7 from vista. I had trouble connecting to the internet. I went to the search programs and files option from my start menu. I found the explorer 64 bit option and  clicked on it and the internet can right up.

I downloaded things like i-tunes and sony reader and when i go to places like the library that need to access the internet i get the no connection error. I also get messages that i am trying to run a 32 bit version of something that has a 64 bit cpu and an error code. I need to know how to change the defaut to run everything on the 64 bit version. I hope this makes since to someone. I am so confused and frustrated.

Will 64-bit Win 7 Run 32-bit Xp Compatible Programs ?

Will 64-bit windows 7 run 32-bit xp compatible programs that are not compatible with 64-bit vista ultimate? I recently bought a new pc with vista ultimate. It's my first 64-bit system (long time xp user). I have encountered big problems with the new 64-bit vista.

Specifically, i have several programs which run on 32-bit xp, but will not run at all on 64 bit vista (vpn checkpoint client, and solidworks 2008 - both non-trivial items used constantly for work). I bought the computer never imagining that i would have problems with these programs.

In vista, the only option i've found to make these programs "work" has been virtual pc. With virtual pc, in your new vista operating system, you can set up a "virtual computer", and install an old operating system on it, where your old programs will work. Installing an old operating system within a new operating system polices the borders of common sense. Too - the programs you install on the "virtual pc" are not free to communicate with the "real" pc. So in the frustrating case of my vpn client, i only see it function in fairyland (i.e. The virtual pc).

I recall a similar issue that arose with the windows 98 transition to xp. I thought xp handled this well with its "program compatibility wizard" (as i believe it was called). Where did this function go? Will it return with w7?

Ms Dos Compatibility Problems

I've been trying to run a rather old programme on my new laptop, the current operating system is window 7 -32 bit, home edition. I am trying to run a programme (originally designed for dos or windows 95) which requires dos to be run full screen, however i keep getting an error message telling me that the system does not support full-screen mode.

Im trying to find a solution that does not require me to partition my hard drive and install an earlier version of windows for the sake of the one programme.

Any suggestions?

Dos On A 64-bit System

I'm in the process of upgrading to a 64 bit laptop. My question is. Can a dos system (e.g. Dr. Dos, caldera dos, ms dos, pc dos, etc. ) Be installed on a laptop with a 64 bit processors 64 bit processors are supposed to be backward compatible to 32 bit architecture, this should be possible, but i haven't found any supporting statements. If anyone has a thought on this subject, it would be greatly appreciated. However, please remember that the nature of the question is can/how and not why - i'm not looking for alternative solutions, only a simple yes or no.

Error - Invalid Ms-dos Function

Whilst trying to copy a outlook mail file from dvd back to a new hard drive the file gets about half copied and i get a "invalid ms-dos function" error. Didn't mr. Bill declare that there are no more old, evil dos left in windows 7? Clicking on the retry button starts over instead of trying to re-read the datablock it is choking upon.

Verifone Ms Dos Program Problem

I use the computer for work. I use a ms-dos program for loading pos terminals by verifone. The ms-dos program wont load on windows 7. It states the version of this file is not compatible with the version of windows you're running. Check you computer's system information to see whether you need an x86(32-bit) or x64(64-bit) version of the program, and then contact the software publisher. Does this mean that the windows 7 pro version with 64-bit which i have will not work and if so will a 32-bit windows 7 work and is it available? I am using vista now and it works sometimes when not crashing.

How To Find Java Runtime In Dos On Windows 7?

This is an extract from my registry:

[Hkey_local_machine\software\javasoft\java runtime environment\1. 6]

"Javahome"="g:\\program files (x86)\\java\\jre6"

Not sure why it is showing the double backslash. I've tried various commands (in batch files), such as the following, without success:

- - - -
@Echo off
Set keyname=software\javasoft\java runtime environment\1. 6
Rem set keyname=hkey_local_machine\software\javasoft\java runtime environment

Set cmd=reg query "%keyname%" /s
For /f "tokens=2*" %%i in ('%cmd% ^| find "javahome"') do set java_home=%%j
Set java_home
Pause
- - - -

I know this can be set manually, but this is not what is needed.

Through a usb port. We were ok with xp with the command below:

Net use lpt1: \computernamesharename /persistent:yes

It keeps saying "password is incorrect" about the command is typed. There is no password for this username. I did set up the security. Is there a bug in this routine?

Error - Logonui Exe No Disk - Outlook Exe No Disk

I have windows 7 professional running 64 bit. A very annoying error pops up every five minutes or so. The message varies and can read "logonui exe no disk" or "outlook exe no disk" or "your favorite app. - No disk" depending on what i am running at the time. I have looked at many forums and can see that this error occurred in previous windows flavors. Some answers point to malware or infected file, others seem to think it's a corrupt install file. I have a fresh install of win 7. My previous os being xp.

I have reinstalled win7 and tried repair functions. No luck so far.
