Try doing a system restore to a point before you did that.

It Might Be An Executable File, But Be Cautious Of Its Sources, It Can Even Be A Virus, If You Are Sure Of Its Source And There Wont Be Antivirus Then Rename Ext To Exe And Try Running That, If Some Error Try Compatability Mode, Some Exe Files Wont Support In Windows7 may Even Run In XP.
