type "sys"" in the run box, choose system restore and a date before this issue started, there is a check box to see older restore points, follow the instructions and let us know what happens.

jessica.alin, You're showing Windows Vista but this is the Windows 7 forum??? Go to the appropriate link below for your version of Windows and download the "exe" file association fix. Instructions for running it are on the page.

@princecorum: Error comes up saying Windows can't find it.
@Tufenef: Sorry, you're right I am on Windows 7 - put Vista by accident... This did the trick! Fixed in less than a minute :D

Thanks to both of you so much!
