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.

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.

Replacing Explorer.exe File For Themes

I downloaded a new theme for windows 7, however, i am nervous about replacing the explorer.exe file as instructed. By default, i would think that's a bad idea. But since i'm still learning my way around windows 7, i'm not sure if this is supported as i can't seem to find anything on microsoft's site saying that it's acceptable or not. Has anyone done this when installing new themes in windows 7?

Justcheck.exe File Issue When Start Computer

I just recently obtained windows 7 64 bit home premium on a new pc from dell computers. Whenever i boot up i get the message from an unknown publisher labeled 'justcheck.exe ', and when i reply'no'to the message, java appears in my task box each time. I did a search on microsoft, dell, java for this message to no avail. It is as though they never heard of it. I have mcafee for antivirus, as well as super-anti-spyware and these do not address this issue. I was wondering how widespread this issue is, and what can be done about it?

Installation File Won't Run Without Iso Burning Software

Problem installing downloaded version of windows 7 professional on a netbook running xp with no external dvd drive - installation file won't run without iso burning software. I downloaded windows 7 professional to install on my netbook running windows xp - the help indicated that this would be possible and would avoid the need for an external dvd drive but because it needs to be a clean install the file downloaded is a . Iso file which i guess needs to be burnt to a cd to run?

Is there any way of getting round this without getting an external dvd drive, possibly by using alcohol120% to mount it on a virtual drive - i guess this could be a problem with a clean install, so would it work if i put it on my external hard drive?

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.

Live File System Will Not Save File

Live file system will not save file!Windows 7 and udf will copy several files and then you get to the last file which is 700 meg and the space free bar under the dvd rw drive shows 1. 2 gig left. The copy starts and runs till about 350 meg left then it slows down all the way to 17 kbs and also till 10 k was left on the dvd. By this time about 5 hrs have gone by and the copy window has showed 1 hr left for 3 hrs. The cancel button won't work task manager when used will crash the system. You can force a shut down but then you have to reactivate norton with your purchase code. A search of the internet for me was no help at all.

How Do I Open A File As A Zip File?

I work with an application that packages files into "zipped folders" (yeah, just zip files), but uses a different file extension. It works exactly like . Gadget (windows gadgets) and . Themepack (windows themes) files work: you can rename them to .zip and open them with the zip viewer.

I want to skip the step of renaming it each time. I want to just associate the files with the zip viewer. In fact i don't need to associate it, just open-with a single time: i know if i can do it once, it will always be an available option on the right-click context menu of the files.

But i can't find which program is associated with zip files. I tried searching the system-32 folder.

.exe Files Will Not Open Normally

.exe files will not open normally, they just give a message saying "choose the program you want to use to open this file" i've seen this problem elsewhere but with a few different recommendations. My windows 7 recently started malfunctioning recently after apparently contracting several viruses - i think i've gotten rid of most of the problems by downloading the free version of avg, which was recommended to me by a friend. However, two problems remain:

1. Internet explorer keeps opening erratically and immediately accessing strange websites (i'm sure this is some sort of malware still on my computer). My internet explorer folder won't delete, either (it says i need "permission from trustedinstaller to make changes to this folder").

2. I can't open .exe files normally. Every time i try to (either by double clicking an icon or from the start menu) i get an "open with" window, prompting me to pick an application to open the .exe file with. I can still open applications if i right-click on them and select "run as administrator", but something is still obviously wrong and i'm hoping someone knows what might be happening so they can help.

Oh, and the little tab in the bottom right hand corner of the screen (where the "safely eject hardware" button usually is") is gone.

Explorer.exe Uses Too Much Memory

My computer is running windows 7 home premium, 32-bit. I just discovered yesterday that my explorer.exe was literally chomping thousands of thousands of kb of memory just to run. (Going to task manager -> processes). Before, it would take, at most, about15, 000-17, 000 kb to run. Now, the only things i know of that are in explorer.exe are the background slideshow i had running, the gadgets, and the my computer/library windows i had open.

I have 1 gadget, a slideshow of 16 images, and two folder windows open. Before, i had 15-20 windows open and sometimes 40 slideshow images and 10 gadgets running at the same time and the memory still wasn't so high. This morning, it ate up 1, 432, 226 kb (1. 4 gb of memory) just to run. I was kinda scared, so i switched it to only one wallpaper, 1 gadget (the clock one), and no folder windows open. It still ran up to 125, 000kb. Does anybody have similar problem/solution?

I need more memory to make skype calls and use firefox. They keep crashing because i don't have enough memory. Even if i lower the priority of the process it still stays at a crazy level and actually, if i leave it be, it uses more and more memory every minute.

Wininit.exe Using 50% Cpu

My windows 7 dell laptop has recently become really slow. Cpu load is way up high, the fan is on full speed and the hard disk is very busy. Task manager shows that wininit.exe is permanently using 50% of the cpu with other processes mostly using no more than a few percent. In safe mode, wininit behaves itself and cpu load remains low. In fact i'm writing this post in safe mode because the computer is too slow to use in normal mode. I've run virus scans with avg and panda and both came back clean. I can't remember what i did, if anything, to make this start but i'd be grateful for any ideas on how to make it stop.

Explorer.exe Is Crashing

My system was infected yesterday by one of those fake antivirus programs. Usually i am able to get rid of it fairly easily. I run spybot search and destroy as well as defender. It seemed to have removed the problem. I restarted the computer and now i am having issues. Explorer will not load on it's own. All i get is a black screen with a mouse pointer in the middle. I used alt-ctrl-delete to start the wtm and explorer through it. But i am unable to open any folders.

After clicking on any folder it takes about 30sec for a message to popup stating: "server execution failed". I can start start most programs through wtm, but i want to run the disk check to see if there are errors. Is there anything i can do? Or should i reinstall? I would hate to do that, but if it's the only option.

Network .exe Issues

I am currently running a ms server 2003 network. I have mainly all xp boxes and few vista boxes running on the network. I just recently got my first win7 laptop and are having issues install programs (office 2007, norton) from their network locations. The security will not allow me. It asks for a username and password but the network admin credentials do not work nor does the users.

The weird part is that i can copy the complete folder over and install directly from the harddrive but that seems old school. Am i missing something here that will allow me to run .exe files directly from the network.

Sttray64.exe Application Error

Sttray64.exe application error, mmc.exe application error, and a zte usb modem that has started giving me access violation errors/msdart.dll and eolesys errors in module dll_netcard_r.dll

Windows 7 home with norton 360 2010

Part 1: the problem started with my zte usb modem giving me the different access violations, it says that msdart.dll was not designed to work with the operating system, along with the eolesys errors and access violations. It previously worked fine, and now i'm not sure why it won't work.

Part 2: i also after the previous errors started, that right after booting up that it gave me a sttray64.exe application error. I would close it, and eventually had norton not let it bootup with the system which solved that problem. Then i noticed that i also was denied access to the device manager through a mmc.exe application error. Also certain command prompts like event-viewer give me the application error etc.

What kind of problem could this be? It seems to be acting like a virus, but my system speed and functionality has remained great. It's not slow and doesn't reboot or give me problems outside when i look for the things mentioned above. Norton has always been up and running and its never given lets worms through before.

I've tried system restore back a few months and from the backup i had on an external but it doesn't change anything. Would a return to factory settings help?
