1. Open Command Prompt by typing cmd in RUN dialog box.

2. Now provide following command:
cd\windows

3. It'll activate Windows folder. Now provide following command to open Registry Editor:
regedit

4. Now goto following key:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.exe
In right-side pane, change value of Default key to exefile

5. Now goto:
HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\exefile\shell\open\com…
In right-side pane, change value of Default key to:
"%1" %*

6. Thats it. Now exit Registry Editor and restart your Windows. Now you should be able to open EXE files without any problem.
