Hey
I am having some trouble opening EXE files on my computer. I can open the programs through shortcuts (such as directly opening documents will open Microsoft Word, but i can not open microsoft word directly. I dont think it is understanding the .EXE entenstion. Any suggestions?

This problem may occur if the W32/Swen.A@MM (Swen) worm installed itself on your computer when you installed a security update that you received as an e-mail attachment to an unexpected e-mail that claims to be from Microsoft.
