Hey everyone, so i have a very strange problem.


any time i try to open an install .exe with THIS type of icon:


i get the error, "windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file."

however, i can open install .exe's with THIS type of icon:



i know its not the icon itself that is causing the problem, but i'm assuming they're different types of installers and for some reason one won't work.

i am the administrator of this computer and there is only one account, and that is mine. can't open them in safe mode either. any suggestions???? thank you!!!

Sounds like the registry got pooched. Has the machine been infected? Bad power supply? I half-remember seeing this before, but can't remember how (or even if) it got fixed.

That's not a Windows standard icon.

I believe your systems infected? What type of program is the 'EXE'

Antivirus? Utility? Malware?
