Alright.
So I have browsed around this forum already and seen some methods listed on how to fix my computer so I can open .exe files. None of them have worked, though!
I was told I could have a trojan, so I attempted to download malwarebytes.
However, I could not run the application because it is an .exe file...and I can't open exe files.
When I try to, it tells me to choose the application it opens with, and I have no idea what application it opens with.
If anyone can give a solution, I would be highly grateful.

I suggest you go to the Malware Removal and Spyware Removal Forum and run all the steps located in the START HERE. These self-help tools will help you clean up 70% of problems on your own. If you are still having problems after doing the steps, then please post the reguested logs in THAT forum. If you are unable to run any of the tools then start a new topic in the malware forum and put this in the subject line...I am unable to run any malware tools

If you are still having problems after being given a clean bill of health from the malware expert, then please return to THIS thread and we will pursue other options to help you solve your current problem(s).
