I'm assuming you've ran all the standard malware scans?

Try uninstalling ccleaner.

For some reason ccleaner has been set as the default program to open everything is my guess.

Hmmmmmmmmm....... o.k. then. I thought rebuilding the cache might do it, try this it SHOULD work.

Start Menu > type in regedit > go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\
look for the .INK extension > delete the .INK or the userchoice key > Then reboot.
