Very surprising thanks,
I would of guessed if you had Inkscape/ CorelDraw/ Illustrator or even GIMP those would be the default

I do have a svg file probably more than a few but yes Inkscape produces these files by default
It does show a internet explorer icon but ie can't do anything with that file type it's a Inkscape project file I don't have Inkscape installed anymore
It will however open in CorelDraw

Hello inletwolf, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You might see if you may be able to use Default Programs to set the AOL program as the default for all of it's associations.

Default Programs - Set a Program's Default Associations

In addition since this has just happened, you could also do a system restore using a restore point dated before this happened to undo and restore your settings.
