    what program opens exe files
    « on: August 29, 2009, 04:04:17 PM »
    I decided to install firefox  so I downloaded it, but when I double click on the icon, it brings up the box that says 'choose the program you want to open this file'  And then it has all the programs like internet explorer, adobe reader, itunes, paint, quicktime,... listed. 

    I know we get this box when we install programs that are not associated with applications, but this is weird, ive never seen it with an exe.  I cant even open regedit or any of the other files that have the exe ending

    what do i do

      no exe files open.  but i found a nifty program called exe_fix.xp.com that fixed it.  I tried to delete this post but the board wont let me.
