Would you guys know of anyway to do exactly what the original post does but in script form? (at least for just the documents library) Need to reset it to default. I need to do this for a mass of PCs.

Windows 7: Libraries - Restore Default

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Shawn for posting his original message way back in 2008!!! I have been messing around with the libraries on my system for two days now, and they are finally back to the way I want them. Deleting the libraries and then restoring the default libraries worked like a charm. Such a simple fix I can't believe I didn't find it myself. Oh well, live and learn. Thanks again, Shawn!!!

If anyone still hasn't got it fixed and it is possible that the computer at one point had a virus consider that the file type association for the library type got trashed. Follow the solution in Default File Type Associations - Restore for library-ms type. That worked for me
