Basically you need to restore the default File Associations.
When you double-click an .EXE file, the program may not launch, instead it may open in Notepad (displaying the .exe contents), or may launch in any other application.
When you run an .exe file on a Windows Vista-based or Windows 7-based computer, the file may start a different program http://support.microsoft.com/kb/950505 Restore the .exe file association in Windows Vista, after incorrectly associating it with another application http://www.winhelponline.com/articles/165/1/Restore-the-exe-file-association-in-Windows-Vista-after-incorrectly-associating-it-with-another-application.html
