I started noticing I had problems with this when I tried to download various Stick Arena Ballistic trainers (all .exe), none opened and I had lots of flash errors (EG. Flash10c.ocx, and 10k), another program is Wordbiz, (.exe again) crashes right away. At first I tried to fix the flash, nothing worked, the solution was to re download, I have download every extension but nothing works, I have tried to fix the exe assuming that was the problem, I download exe_fix_w7, but it errors everytime? Any advice -_-

The first thing i would check is for a malware related problem. Post logs in the Section with the same problem listed and see what a true tech helper comes up with.

I personally don't know a lot about how exe files work. I would just Google stuff and research. And just cuz that says its clean it might not be. still might want to post a thread.

Is it all exe files or just for the mentioned programs?
Does IE, Notepade, Windows Explorer, Media player or any others open

I don't think it is the system but the programs themselves.
Go HERE to see what flash version you have and see if you are current.
