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

    [​IMG]

    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"

    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
