The "Read & Execute" permission listed on a file's property window doesn't really mean anything. Executables only need read permissions [0] to actually be executed.

Additionally, in terms of _stat, Windows does its check by extension [1] but they don't specify what extensions they look for.

Adding ".dll" checking would be the most we could do here.
