FixExec is a program that is designed to fix executable file associations for the .bat, .exe, and .com file extensions. If the program detects any of these associations are missing, changed, or hijacked, the settings will be set back to the original Windows defaults. When file associations for batch, executable, or COM files are changed it could cause your executables to no longer start.

Furthermore, it is not uncommon for malware to change the .exe, .bat, or .com file associations so that when you launch a program it will launch a malware file instead. This makes it very difficult to start your security programs to help you remove the infection as they no longer will start properly. With this in mind FixExec will terminate any processes found in locations that malware typically starts from. This will allow you to quickly terminate the malware and reset the file associations so that you can then properly launch your security programs. It may, though, terminate legitimate programs when running. Do not worry if this happens as you just can restart them or restart your computer to get these processes started again.
