All .EXE files open windows media center – windows7 virus

Two days ago, one of my friends called me for help in windows 7 problem .. when ever he opens a “.EXE” executable file he got ‘windows media center’ opened !

When i started to tell him what to do, I realized that its not possible to open rstrui or msconfig or even the task manager cuz all are executable LOL ..

I thought it could be a registry problem, and guess what regedit is also an executable file =D .. so I opened my registryEditor and started digging … and here is what i found :

the .exe file Extension in locates in
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.exe\

but we still can’t change anything in his computer because we can’t run the registry editor =D .. so I created this .reg file that hopefully saved him .. http://www.4shared.com/file/0LaqiLZj/exeFix.html
 
Hope this helps if anyone else have the same problem :)

  1. Saved me too, Thanks.
    i managed to get into registry with some live boot tools i have but could only think of this to be the issue
    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\command
    Default being “%1″ %*

  2. Guys just Restart Your Computer In “SAFE MODE” by pressing F8 when it is starting/ Restarting….
    Now after its ON.., Go to control Panel—> Programs –> Turn Windows Features ON or OFF –> Go to Media Features, Expand it and UN-CHECK / DE-SELECT The WindowsMediaCenter..
    Its Over Guys Finished….

    ” NOTE: Plez dont Enable WindowsMediaCenter ”

    Its so simple, I Found it out After trying all ******** found through Internet…
    Works with everyone… Happies….
