Hi Guys,

If you are experiencing the issue that you can’t open any .exe on

Windows 7 home
Windows 7 Pro
Windows 10
Windows 10 pro

and you just can’t open any file -(These Files can’t be opened – Your internet security settings prevented one or more files from being opened.)

these files can't be opened

Follow these steps and hopefully it should be resolved.

Step 1 

Reboot PC into Safe Mode with networking

Step 2 

Download Malwarebytes

Step 3 

Scan pc for viruses

Step 4 

If you find no viruses on your PC – continue to do a system restore ( Restore the pc to an earlier date)

I think this issue is related to a critical windows update or your pc might be infected with a virus or malware.

Thank you

Willem Perold
