    Default .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:

    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
