Default Re: problem in executing .exe file from cd Drive

Hi

What security applications do you have installed as I remember an issue like this on a PC with a 3rd party firewall installed and a rule causing this, weird as it seems you'd wonder why the firewall would cause this. As you have had this issue for 2 mounths what was it you installed if anything around that time?

Have you scanned for malware?

If you right click one of those .exe's and choose properties and is Unblock on the general tab? if so try that.

If you uninstall your 3rd party software firewall and then reboot and try is this happing still?
