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 🙂
