For some reason files with no extension open up with the Mass Effect 2 Launcher instead of prompting what program it should open with..



The extension with the "." is really the extensionless file and it is showing the recommended program to be "Launcher Application"

I just want it to be set back to the default. When I try to change the default program to notepad or something else, it won't let me.

Thanks.

[Edit]



The "file with no extension" should look like "unknown extension.asdf"

hiya ,have you tried a system restore( back to a date when all was well)
That's your answer to everything isn't it?

Well, this has been like this for a while, I just started getting ticked off about it, so system restore probably won't work.

Click Start | Run, type regedit, press Enter
Navigate to here:
Code:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\FileExts\.
and expand the key.
Delete the UserChoice subkey
