    Windows 10 apps and .exe files not starting


    Version: Windows 10 Pro 1909

    Apps installed from Microsoft store are not opening and I can't install software because nothing happens when I try to open .exe files. There is no message and when I run as admin, after I press yes on the pop up it just disappears and nothing happens afterwards. this is a very frustrating problem that I need to fix ASAP! I have extensively looked for solutions (including changing registry values) but nothing has worked.

    Windows 10 Tweaks

    Pressing “Windows+Pause Break” (it’s up there next to scroll lock) opens the “System” Window.

    Windows 10: In the new version of Windows, Explorer has a section called Quick Access. This includes your frequent folders and recent files. Explorer defaults to opening this page when you open a new window. If you’d rather open the usual This PC, with links to your drives and library folders, follow these steps:

    • Open a new Explorer window.
    • Click View in the ribbon.
    • Click Options.
    • Under General, next to “Open File Explorer to:” choose “This PC.”
    • Click OK

    Impossible to starts some exe files!


    hello everyone,

    I need help as I have tried all of what i have found in this and other forums, whitout any success.
    Since a week icant start some exe files and i dont know why only some!
    i have appleied what was described in Restore Default File Type Associations in Windows 10 Windows 10 Customization Tutorials ,
    but no better results.
    I have scanned my laptop for virus or malwares, and its clean.
    for example i want start Acronis, then win10 say cant find the file even so i try to start it directly from the exe file!
    same if i want to start ACDSee and some others applications.

    For others files its perfectly ok, like AVG PCtune; Malwarebytes, Microsoft Office and so many others.

    I have also tried to install again the sotware which doesnt start but it is the same.

    Some people suggested that possibly a dll have been modified, but how to find out?
    I hope someone will be able to help me as my next step would be to fully reinstall windows and all applications.

    Thanks a lot for your help

    Regards
