Since I installed McAfee Totel Protection I have lost my exe. files, so I can not load programs up normally. I have to go to a file and open it up through explorer or my documents. I tried getting help from McAfee but after about five calls they told me that the .exe file was missing! I had worked that out myself.


It seems that your computer was infected by Virus which had affected some exe files. After installing McAfee, it removed those infected exe files due to which you are facing this issue. You may try a system restore to fix this issue, else you need to reinstall the Operating System.
