Welcome aboard

Download teh registry filse for .exe and .lnk from the link Default File Type Associations - Restore and double click to merge those in the registry hive.

Let us know if it worked or not.

At the same time, uninstall utorrent, Run SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker , and then you may reinstall it.
