All programs opening with MWord by default

Specs: Windows 7
I had an old MWord file which I searcher for in the start menu. It appears that the file which showed up was a shortcut to the file, but the file had been deleted. So, when I clicked on it, a message came up asking if I would like to choose a program to open the file with, or, if I would like the computer to pick the best program to open it with by browsing on the internet for me. I chose to open it myself without the internet using MWord as id was a .docx file. Next thing I know, every single program on my computer now opens by default with MWord which essentially means that nothing works properly except for MWord because they are all starting using MWord when they shouldn't be. How can I put things back to how they were? Please help.

Use system restore to a date prior to opening that file. This will restore the 'system' to its prior state before the change (it will not affect personal files saved by you since then).
If this does not help, search this site for 'file association fix windows 7' (or google), there have been some like this posted before for 7 & XP.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
