File extension EXE is a file type associated with executable files on a variety of different operating systems from Microsoft Windows, DOS and also OS/2 systems. When a user double clicks these executable files, it is enough to make these files to start running, load the program in memory and open the application. It is a known fact that virtually, all the programs which run under DOS or Windows have an EXE file extension. Almost all EXE files start with ASCII MZ, but in some cases the ones that are produced by compliers have an additional different identification. This file type is prone to infections from viruses very easily, so one should ideally scan it for malware before opening, especially if the EXE file was downloaded from a not reliable website.

Incorrect associations are the cause of many file extension errors. Scan your system to prevent, identify and repair EXE file extension association errors.
