Irfanview has taken over!! Help?

I have been doing some resizing of photos for a webpage, using Irfanview (which did the job exactly as it says on the tin!!) - but I think I must have done something, because now whatever set of pictures I want to open (even any not involved with the webpage) they come up opening with'Irfanview' - my complete collection!
I can then open in 'windows' as previously by using the 'open with' option, but it reverts back the next time. Short of uninstalling Irfanview, is there anything I can do to return to the previous setup?
I'm lost - any help out there? Thanks.

..IrFanview has overwritten your associations.

You could re-associate them by hand but i've just found this (haven't tried it myself) which has a button that purports to default all your associations for image files.

The alternative is to uninstall irfanview which i suspect will put them back as they were...I'd be tempted to go for that.

Have you tried right clicking on an image and going into the properties and changing "opens with" option. NOT to be confused with the "open with" option, you will need to go into properties of the image.

I to use irfanview and had the same problem media files the lot were changed! I use this click here It checks with you first before any changes take place.

Thanks, that did seem to be the only way - so I did uninstall Irfanview and everything reverted to 'normal' .
I will be much more careful using Irfanview next time. Cheers.

Thanks, also, your post appeared after I thanked pauldonovan. Will look into that 'winpatrol' you mentioned. Thanks.
