Cannot open .exe files.

James Morales

Recommended Posts

I booted up today and all my windows icons were just blank folders, nothing will open including ASC 5 which I think will fix the .exe registry errors. I run ASC 5 Quick Clean daily and Deep Clean weekly on Friday always without fail. I cannot open anything. Is there a way to have ASC / IObit fix it from the internet? I cannot even open regedit to try and fix it myself. MS sent me to another "IObit Competitor" that found my .exe files corrupted and wanted $49.00 to fix them. I like and have always liked ASC and will now buy v6 but didn't know it was even out yet. I can't run v5 which would fix it I just get a Code 115 error message.


Running Windows 7 Pro, 64 bit and AVAST Pro virus and ASC 5 Pro. Thanks for anyone's help!

If it was Not caused by a Virus,

then the Info on this page, at Microsoft, may help.

(If it was caused by a Virus, you may have to Format the drive and Re-install the OS.)


Click link:



Note - Of course to do this repair you will need to run 'regedit', which is an .exe



Here's info about Error Code 1155:

(which is a corrupted System-files error-code)


Try to do a 'System-Restore' first, to fix it.


Be sure to run chkdsk /r

as soon as possible to check for Drive errors.

Toppack's post is most helpful!!:smile: Make sure you investigate the links in the Microsoft thread he linked to!


Please describe the event that happpend rendering executables impotent. Please describe fully the situation that led to this.


How are you able to post on this forum? Are you using another device to post?


Have you tried entering Windows via safe mode? Then using system restore?


As your machine is relatively new... you may have the recovery disc... you can repair using it.





Live long and prosper!

Welcome to the forum :smile:


Did you contact Microsoft (MS) and are you sure it was Microsoft support you were talking to ?

I find it strange that Microsoft support would recommend a 3rd party software rather than trying to convince you to let them fix the problem for a fee


Also, if the "IObit Competitor" was an .EXE file and you could run that then I would be very suspicious that you have been infected because it is the only .EXE file you can run and you have to pay to use it to fix the problem


All the best, woz of oz
