Not sure if I can help as she's 2.5k miles away and can't open remote assistance or in fact anything but a heads up is most appreciated

Hello Richard,

In this case, it may be easier to do a system restore at boot using a restore point dated before she did this to quickly undo it.

Hello Karmen, and welcome to Seven Forums.

ofx files do not have an association by default in Windows. If you like, the .reg file below will unassociate ofx file for you.
