Windows 7: Problem with Program Allocation - need help please

Problem with Program Allocation - need help please

I have a problem on my Windows7 laptop when clicking on internet shortcut links...

When I try to opening a link, Windows no longer knows what to open it with and tries defaulting to MS Word. I've tried selecting in the usual way and ticking the box to have either IE or Firefox to open them, but it just won't work.

Any ideas please?
