How come I get an “Open With” popup when I click on .exe files?

by on February 25, 2010

Q: I have just used spyware doctor to successfully remove “Trojan-BNK.Win32.Keylogger.gen” but now my problem is that every file (.exe program) that I try to open asks me to select the program from the list or use the internet to search for the the extension!

I think when I removed the trojan that it did something with the registry as well. I am guessing that could be the problem.
I haven’t done anything else because I know ill probably mess things up!

How do I get .exe files working correctly again?
