    Problem running an .exe file


    I tried to run an .exe from a dir on win10 by clicking on it and got a message that defender had stopped it running.

    i clicked for more details and i got it to run.

    but i did nothing to see that this won't happen again. could it? is there something we should do when installing new apps to make sure this doesn't happen?

    :)

  4. Problem running an .exe file

    Cannot run .exe files

    I rebooted my computer and it downloaded some updates. When it restarted, I could no longer run any .exe files. When I click on one, it asks me which program I would like to use to run it. Obviously, there are no programs on the list it offers me. The
    weirdest part is that some downloaded applications (like chrome, thankfully) still run. Any suggestions on how I can fix this or what happened?
