    I think that the file association related to .exe file has been damaged or corrupted, so the best way to solve that issue to download a utility called from here. Save it at your desktop and double click on it to start it and after sometimes the exefile association in the registry will be automatically fixed.

    Just try out these steps:
    1. Open the Control Panel
    2. Click on Folder Options - File Types
    3. Select the desired extension, and Advanced
    4. Select Open, then Edit
    5. Without the field 'Application used', check that there is "% 1" at the end, if not add it manually

    Hope it will work.
