notepad files run as registry editor

When I click on a txt file it keep pop up with Registry Editor. How do I stop this from happening so when I click on a txt file it open up notepad. The only way I am able to open it in notepad is by right click and hitting edit.

You know - I thought I knew something about computers - I've only been playing around with them for like 20+ years. Today I realised how little I knew. First buying what I thought would be the right ram chip to upgrade my memory (forgetting of course that matched pairs are bought as a pair - doh!!) and second I've already picked up a few useful little tips from this site - like the one mentioned above. It just goes to show you can teach an old dog new tricks - thanks guys
