    Hello

    I recommend you perform the clean boot.
     
    Configuration of your system in a clean boot state helps determine if third-party applications or startup items are causing the problem. If so, you need to maybe contact the manufacturer of the program for updates or uninstall and reinstall the program.
     
    See the following article in the Microsoft KB for more information on how to solve a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or Windows 7:

  • .exe files are not open; affected by the Windows Security Center of lazy virus

    Hello!

    As the title indicates, none of my executables will open his; on the contrary, when I click on an icon or similar function (as in the start menu), I'm inclined to the screen 'open with... ». I noticed that most often, if I run the program as administrator, it is likely to work without having to manually find the file - still a bit tedious however.

    I'm assuming that since I was recently hit by the virus which is a fake Windows Security Center, something my registry has also been hit (take into account the fact that I'm not savvy computer in the slightest). It happened on my user account initial and rather than take action on the right, then, I decided that I would use the other account that I had to install a program better anti-virus (Norton provided ISP) than the one I had been using (the two admin). At that point, I had finished all my activity moved to the new account and it worked very well until the virus had one possessing this account as well - delete on the first user account seemed to have deleted only the effects of my account but still affected everything I did after that. This time, I went and deleted all accounts and checked to ensure that it is not at all. After getting rid of the virus, it's the same thing: none of my .exe files will open without using the monitor "open with...". ». I'm not really sure what action to take from here, I have not done much to remedy the situation, and I'm going right through the screen of "open with...". "to get to what whatever - so any suggestions or help would be very appreciated.

    Keypoints:

    • .exe files are not open (However, in some cases, the "Run as Administrator" option overrides it)
    • recently hit with (deleted) and fake Windows Security Center virus ; That's when the .exe is no longer
    • is not much in terms of addressing this problem, do not know what to do with regard to the question of if my situation calls for something specific

    I tried to cover everything that seemed important to address; However, if there is more need information, let me know. I am about average in terms of computer navigation and therefore my understanding of what many of these commands, functions and files is a bit Basic.

    Thank you! :)

  • Some .exe files do not immediately start after a double click.

    Some .exe files do not immediately start after a double click. However, the CPU usage is in place and I can see the name of the image file in the Task Manager process. But when you double-clicked once again, it opens and the CPU usage is even higher. It's like running two same .exe files. I already ran Microsoft Security Essentials to remove all viruses if that's the case, but it did not help. Is there something wrong with the files?

    This happens because your antivirus starts to scan the file when you try to run it. You can check by

    1 disable antivirus real-time protection (note to Moderator: not recommended!) and try to run the file again
    or
    2. open Task Manager > go to processes (or details if it is WIndows 8) > run file > monitor processes belongs to antivirus to see if they consume the CPU power
    If this is the case, it is made by antivirus normal safety measure to keep you protected.

    Hello

    Welcome to the Microsoft Community Forums.

    I see you've found an error "file does not have a program associated with it for performing this action" when you click office and recent places.

    1. Have you made changes on the computer before this problem?
    2. What is the full error message?

    I suggest you to report to us the screenshot of the Advanced window so that we can understand what exactly the situation.

    The average while you can try the following steps and check if the error reappears.

    Method 1:

    Step 1:

    Start the computer in safe mode and check the number.

    Some options, including the mode safe mode, start Windows in a limited State, where only the essential is started. If a problem doesn't reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers and services as a possible cause.

    Follow this link provided below to start your computer in safe mode.

    Step 2:

    Put the computer to boot and check if the problem persists.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows 7 by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    Note: After troubleshooting, be sure to set the computer to start as usual as mentioned in step 3 of the KB article provided above.

    Method 2: I also suggest that you scan your computer with the Microsoft Security Scanner, which would help us to get rid of viruses, spyware and other malicious software.

    The Microsoft Security Scanner is a downloadable security tool for free which allows analysis at the application and helps remove viruses, spyware and other malware. It works with your current antivirus software.

    http://www.Microsoft.com/security/scanner/en-us/default.aspx

    Note: The Microsoft Safety Scanner ends 10 days after being downloaded. To restart a scan with the latest definitions of anti-malware, download and run the Microsoft Safety Scanner again.

    Important: During the scan of the hard drive if bad sectors are found, the scanner tries to repair this sector, all available on which data may be lost.

    It will be useful.
