To change the ones that are opening wrong. Go to Windows Explorer, click a file you want to change, hold the shift key down and right click the file and choose open with brows to the program you want it to open with, if it's a EXE it should open with Windows, put tick in box always open with press go

Alternately, you can try fixreg.com from click here This utility fixes the exefile association in the registry automatically. It's the 4th download from the top
