If you posted the above in your first mail it would no take seven messages
to two lists to find the truth :-) Always try vanilla zsh first (zsh -f;
autoload -U compinit; compinit). If the problem goes away - try to find
what settings are causing the problem. Not that I always do it myself

As Bart said, you need _ignored completer. This makes sure that if only
matches from ignored set are found they are suggested as possible matches:

{tty0}:/tmp/tst> ll
total 2
-rwxr-xr-x    1 user     544             1 Jul  9 17:19 foo.exe*
-rw-r--r--    1 user     544             1 Jul  9 17:19 foo.ini
{tty0}:/tmp/tst> zstyle -L
zstyle ':completion:*' matcher-list 'r:|[.,_-]=* r:|=*'
zstyle ':completion::complete:-command-:*' ignored-patterns '*.(#i)exe'
zstyle ':completion:*' completer _complete _ignored
{tty0}:/tmp/tst> ./foTAB
{tty0}:/tmp/tst> ./foo.exe

I guess, we really should hash just foo for foo.exe and stop messing with
ignored patterns.
