all.exe file open in media center RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a windows 7 ultimate machine that has started opening all .exe file in windows media center .This happened after downloading a  program. Most solutions are to go to programs file and change what WMC  can open . But most of the window programs also open in WMC. Tried restoring sytem but had no backup point. Can not get to REGEDIT because also opens in WMC.

    Most solution have not worked because Window media center will not let me open files needed. Can I restore window 7 without disk from Microsoft? I just downloaded a file window6.1-KB3102810-x86 that say it might help. but if there is a real fix for this issue from Microsoft it would be great. Please help. going back to my Mac.

  • Hi,

    As S.Sengupta mentioned, please try it.

    In addition, if you need to install or reinstall Windows 7 you can use this page to download a disc image (ISO file) to create your own installation media using either a USB flash drive or a DVD.

    Download Windows 7 Disc Images (ISO Files):
