Scan you system with Malwarebytes since you probably have an infection that caused it. Then when it is clean, use system restore to roll your system back, BUT pick a date well before the problem first began (at least a week before) to restore to (to avoid any effects that may have began before it became noticeable).

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

Roxi, Try the EXE file association fix at the link below. Instructions are on the page.

Fingers also gave you good advice but I'm afraid you wouldn't be able to install MalwareBytes since your EXE file association is hosed.

File Association Fixes for Windows 7

DO NOT click on the big blue "DOWNLOAD" button but follow the Instructions.
