Want help to change file association to "unknown application"

I was playing Assassin's Creed 3,but one day it stopped displaying my profile in the game.So I decided to find the save games and try to solve it myself but ended up screwing it up.I changed a .save file's default application to the game application(hoping it would solve the problem).I now thought to replay the game from start but now I need to change the associated application.I visited other posts on the web and even removed open with entries for .save in the registry editor.Help!
