Try using System Restore. Choose a restore point that's dated before the problem was first noticed by you.

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > System Restore

If that doesn't fix it. it may have been caused by malware (viruses and the like), so you'll need to post here: http://www.computing.net/forum/secu...

Yes, it is possible some malware is present - if so it needs to be dealt with..

You could also try the EXE fix from here:

You have a virus which has atleast corrupted the .exe file association. You need to run the .exe fix as suggested above. Then after running that see if you can download malwarebytes and run a full scan, let it update, then removed selected when it finishes. If when you restart, your file associations are broke again, re-run the tool. check again to make sure you have no more malware.
