Another option would be try going to:
Control Panel -> Clock, Language and Region -> Region and Language.

The Region and Language window will be opened. Click on "Additional Settings" button.
Click on the "Date" Tab.
And whatever are the defaults, replace the text in the "Short date" field in the "Date Formats" Section with "dd-mm-yyyy" and click on "Apply" button

Could go into the registry if you feel comfortable doing so, but I would create a restore point before doing so:

System Restore Point - Create

In Registry Editor, open the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\International
Add or edit the sShortDate string value using a value data for the short date format contained in the following list:
MM/dd/yyyy
M/d/yy
M/d/yyyy
MM/dd/yy
yy/MM/dd
yyyy-MM-dd
dd-MMM-yy

Quit Registry Editor.
Log off Windows, and then log on to Windows again to save the setting.
