Hello Jeamfeaterii, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could download and merge the dat option in the tutorial below to fix this. It will restore the default associations for the dat file extension.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,

Go to Control Panel > Under "Programs" click the blue text "Uninstall a program"
