Follow the directions in this Tutorial by Brink: Restore Default Windows 7 File Extension Type Associations

Wrong OS. Use this instead: Windows® XP File Association Fixes

Download the EXE File Association Fix (Restore default association for EXE files)

NOTE: If your EXE file associations are corrupted, it can be difficult to open REGEDIT, or to even import REG files. To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter.
