All .exe files I download don't work.
I downloaded Skyrim and Creation Kit, and both of them give me this message when I try to launch them:

But if I put "launch as administrator" it works. But when I do that with TESV.exe, the launcher will always open and the game will never start.

it's clear something went wrong with the installtion of the game it could be possibly a virus or malware on your computer or it could be security protocools on your computer that is preventing the game from properly starting the right way

Then what option should I take?

run antivirus and malware programs to clean out the issue if that doesn't work, try adjusting your security proocools and if that doesn't work you have to reinstall steam entirely

Then I'll do it in that order.

no problem if you are having trouble 'adjusting your security protocols" then that part i can't help you and you might just want to skip that part and just reinstall steam entirely

I now discovered searching the internet that it is not a steam problem, it is actually my computer who could have a virus or lack a certain file...

More of a AV's problem with a certain file. Virus is less likely, altough not impossible.
Re-installing Steam is a viable option to try. It might also be, that your system is fine and your AV has a problem.

What AV you are using?

i suppose looking up the error code would make way too much sense ,and i'm sure thats alot harder and would take more time than reinstalling steam .
heck might as well reinstall windows
better yet ,it's broke , so buy a new computer

pike... just punch me already
lol

Pke: I did look up the error code, before making a single answer to this thread. Have I not always done so? Why are you always going after peoles so strongly? There is absolutely no reason for it.

As I said, AV might have a problem with the certain file. Problem is, that this file is used by Steam. Either it has problem and Steam needs to be reinstalled, or problem is in how AV detects and handles this file.

I'll let Avast finish the analysis, then I'll reinstall Steam. Which I believe its not the problem since I just installed Steam today for the first time on that computer.

That actually might be the source of this problem. Avast is detecting new binary files and considers them a problem. I am sure that there are either updates or ignore lists for problems like this.
