Hello Pedra, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if downloading and merging the exe and lnk (LNK) options in the tutorial below may be able to help. They will restore the default associations for these.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

It would also be a good idea to scan your system with either or both the Malwarebytes Free and Microsoft Standalone System Sweeper just to help make sure that your system is clean.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Somehow Adobe Reader has been associated with all you programs. I had something similar happen with a different program and I did a system restore to before the problem occured.

Strange. It should have restored the default association after you merged the EXE and LNK .reg files and restarted the computer.

Doing a system restore, as Bru posted above, using a restore point dated before this happened should also help.
