I doubt it's ALL your downloads, probably just one file type. Right click on one of the files & select Properties. Where it says "Opens with", click the Change button & choose the appropriate program.

EDIT: I just realized you posted in the WinXP forum, but your OS is shown as Win10? Hopefully one of this answers will help.
