My computer won't run EXE files....HELP

By xtrema ·
My computer will not open or run .exe files. I believe I have some type of malware that is causing this. My norton is not picking up the problem. I have tried to download various types of registry cleaners and open them in safe mode and it still won't open them. When I go to open a program it gives me the prompt to "select the program to open the file". If anyone has any help I would greatly appreciate it.

Well knowing what your OS is to begin with would help no end

But you could try the Trinity Rescue Kit to scan and clean your computer.

Though you will need a working computer to burn it to a CD.
