Windows 7: .bat files stuck with opening with cmd.exe

14 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
.bat files stuck with opening with cmd.exe

Now, the title might sound like thats whats meant to happen, but whenever I open a .bat file it just launches the regular command prompt.

This all happened when I went to the "Associate a file extention with a program" section of Control Panel and set .bat files to launch with C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe.

Can anyone help?
