    My laptop with Windows 10 had some viruses/malwares so I decided to reset it. After successfully resetting whenever I run any .exe file it says this:
    [​IMG] but when I run as administrator it works as usually it should, please help, some applications won't work running as administrator.

    Try checking the following registry entries (or save the contents to a .reg file using notepad and then double clicking on the reg file).

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile]
    @="Application"
    "EditFlags"=hex:38,07,00,00
    "FriendlyTypeName"=hex(2):40,00,25,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,52,\
      00,6f,00,6f,00,74,00,25,00,5c,00,53,00,79,00,73,00,74,00,65,00,6d,00,33,00,\
      32,00,5c,00,73,00,68,00,65,00,6c,00,6c,00,33,00,32,00,2e,00,64,00,6c,00,6c,\
      00,2c,00,2d,00,31,00,30,00,31,00,35,00,36,00,00,00
