Windows 7: .bat files stuck with opening with cmd.exe

14 Jan 2013   #1

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
.bat files stuck with opening with cmd.exe

Now, the title might sound like thats whats meant to happen, but whenever I open a .bat file it just launches the regular command prompt.

This all happened when I went to the "Associate a file extention with a program" section of Control Panel and set .bat files to launch with C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe.

Can anyone help?

Opening Files
This is just a ridiculous problem. When I try to open files in on the desktop or windows explorer, nothing happens. The little cursor doesn't do the 'loading' circle thing, or anything. Single click to select works, and right click > open works fine, but the double clicking to open doesn't do...
