I went here File Association Fixes for Windows 7 - The Winhelponline Blog and it fixed it.
Just thought this might help someone else.

Sorry we couldn't help but I'm betting you feel better, not only because you have fixed your son's issues but also because you did it on your own... I know that feeling.

I, personally, appreciate the fact that you took the time to come back and post the answer as this will help the next guy and this is why we are all here.
