Just as a quick suggestion without getting into details since you say its urgent, try running the file BAT from this link Default File Type Associations - Restore

Scroll down to the link that says "BAT" and run that then see if that fixes it.

I open and run that, but it just deletes the .bat folder in regedit!

Re-read the instructions it the tutorial. You download a reg file for the .bat extension, right click it, and Merge.
