The fastest way would have been to do a system restore. If that is not working, looks like something is screwed up in your machine. Have you scanned with malwarebytes antimalware?

In any case, see this tutorial and try out the steps.

Default File Type Associations - Restore

If that doesnt work, try fixing your user profile.
