Hi and thanks all repliers in advance. My wife accidentally (yeah right) opened Mozilla Firefox by right-clicking, hitting Open with..., and then selecting 7-zip; unfortunately, now everything will not open or work properly including SYSTEM RESTORE because everything is being opened by 7-zip. Do any of the bright techies out there have a fix for this? Or, does anyone have any advice about how to rectify this situation; specifically, what software should I associate all of the EXE files with. In other words, what software should be used to open Mozilla Firefox, Skype, Virtual Box (pretty much everything or all programs with an EXE file extension)? Again, any advice is GREATLY APPRECIATED!!!! THANK YOU.


Software/Hardware used:
Everything that I attempt to open is opended by 7-zip and it sucks because I am aware of what needs to be done, just not sure of the steps to correct the issue. AGAIN THANX 2 ALL THOSE WHO REPLY!!!!

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If using windows 7, click start button, then select default programs. Then select the 2nd one, associate file types. Scroll down until you see the .exe extensuion. Remove the association to 7-zip (most likely).
