Try to think what you did just before this happened. Windows usually doesn't react on its own.
Two things to try if you haven't are SFC /scannow, the system file checker and Basic Trouble Shooting Tips.
If that is no help look into Default File Associations.It would be tedious as you have to do each file type separately.
