I'm helping a friend fix her computer she bought at a garage sale. I need to reinstall windows but I'm having a serious issue of mediainfo opening all executables and it's driving me INSANE. I can't open anything, not add/remove programs in the control panel, not programs, here is a lousy screenshot of what I'm talking about. I have no clue what the program is or what it does and why it's opening .exe files.
You don't use official MediaInfo, but a software not created by me (see "About" tab, the creator of the GUI is not me). It use to comme with some codec packs.
This issue is classic with this GUI.
Install official MediaInfo (it will remove the problem from this GUI not created by me) and uninstall it (if you don't want MediaInfo)
