.exe files not being opened in Windows
I tried to install a game using an extraction software known as 7-zip. I used it as OPEN WITH. By mistake I kept it as "Set as default". Now I cannot open any .exe files or play any games that is in my PC. Also, I cannot even backup my computer. And, Install any files. My OS is Windows 7 Home Basic. PLEASE HELP......................

You have 3 options:
You could download the fix here: FIX: EXE or LNK files will not open or not working in Windows 7
You could download the Microsoft Fix It and use it: http://forum.thewindowsclub.com/wind...ndows-7-a.html
Or you could use our File association Fixer to fix the .exe file type. You can download it here: File Association Fixer: Fix File Associations in Windows 7
