You have a few options; one you can right click the file you want to open and select open with then set that as the default. You can go to change default programs and set your default programs there. You can also associate a file type to a particular program as well.

Hell TeqoTorus, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You could download and merge the .reg file of the listed EXE option in the tutorial below to restore the default associations of all exe files.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

Hope this helps,
