Screwed up comp big

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Happened a while ago so Im not 100% clear on the exact details, but i accidentally changed to open .exe to Adobe Reader, now ALL the exe files in the computer are to be opened with Adobe Reader.

No programs work anymore, because they are set to be opened with Adobe Reader.

There are no Open With for this issue.

I uninstalled Adobe Reader and everything works fine, i reinstalled it back just now and its back to the previous issue.

Any ideas?

(can't even open mspaint to paste a screenshot)

im not even sure how to changed it to open with adobe reader, but usually if you right click the exe in properties, there should be an option to change how it opens
