    Heeh forum, i have a problem, i cant open all my exe files, becouse when i was trying to open one last, i kind of changed the standart open program for exe, to my Power iso, so all my exe files on my pc, where change in some way to power iso files. i now have this problem that i cant change it back to standart open, you know i cant open any of my shortcut/ programs so cant open any thing almost, also it took me ages just to find out how to open the internet, cause also that shortcut where changed to an Power iso file, well after i changed it to Power iso file, my pc crashed and ii had to run safe mode, so in safe mode i uninstalled power iso and all, other program like power iso, ( win rar and daemon tools, ) so now when i have to open something i have to find the standart program to open exe, which i dont know where is or dont have.

    Pls help people, i have really no idea what to do?

    First, go to start > Run, and type regedit. Select the HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT branch and export it to your desktop

    Copy and paste the following lines betwen the quotes into Notepad and save as (Choose ALL Files, and manually type the .reg extension. make sure to save it in ANSI format. Name it exefix.reg

    Double-click on the file to merge it into the registry

    I thought that might happen, just double-click on the exefix.reg file.

    You have to copy and paste the lines and create it yourself then save it to your desktop.

    If you don't understand how I can upload it in a .zip file.

    just do it

    click the zip file link and select open. zip files are automatically handled in Windows now.
