Please help desctop icons are all itunes

Hello everyone. I have a problem and was wondering if and one could help me. A while ago i did something i have no idea what it is nad how i got to it so please dont bother asking what it was I did. What it has done is change heaps of programs and thing to itunes format so almost everything on my desctop (and programs taht arnt on my desctop) have been turned in to itunes but they still have the same name just a differnat icon and when i try opening it it opens itunes, so i cant get heaps of thing open. (it does not affect folders, notepad...) also when i download somethint new like a game when the shortcut pops up on the desctop it is itunes. I have tryed deleting the icons cache which I did sucsessfuly but it didnt do anything. Please Help!
