Win7 cannot open programs

#21
I have a fix. I downloaded exe_xp.com from Unable to Start a Program with an .exe File Extension and run it on the XP machine. I usually do this after I've run unhackme or other rootkit removal software. The exe_xp.com file will reassociate exe files in the registry. This solution has been available since 2004, but I've found it on a lot of the PCs I service lately.

I don't use Nortan Antivirus or Mcafee or any other paid virus protection because the infected computers I see have these programs and I have lost confidence in them.

My son isn't regretting the move to Windows 7. He loves it.

Excellent,

Glad to here you got it and posted the file also.

This will help others with the same problem (and it has come up before.)
