lisajcrosby71307, What's the file extension? You could right click on that file, choose Open With, and select the default program then checkmark the "always use the selected program to open these types of files" box. Post back.

Edited to add:
You can also use reg file fixes at the link below to set it back to default if that file extension is on the list. Instructions are on the page.
