Windows 7: .msi File Association Has Been Changed

.msi File Association Has Been Changed

Here's a weird one folks. My wife recently downloaded PCHealthDoc, and somehow or other it has changed the file association for .msi install files. That's fine, I know how to reassign it, but where exactly is the Windows Installer, and what's the name of the file? I've done some searches but can't find the exact program to associate it with. Ideas?
