hi daan...your english is ok.

right-click on a file that you want opened in a different program, and then chose 'Open with...', then 'Choose default program' (or whatever it is in dutch)

ah sorry, i misunderstood your post.

do you have any system restore points saved?

you can run system restore (and not paint) by typing rstrui into the search-box at bottom of start-menu.

if that doesn't work, you can scan (and hopefully repair) system files by typing sfc /scannow into the same search-box. it will take a few minutes, but it sometimes repairs things.

good luck, and let us know if it worked.
