Try Internet Options in the control panel.
Programs.And make sure Internet Explorer is the default web browser.
Or maybe give Malwarebytes free a run

Sounds as if you have lost all the "file associations" maybe a repair is in order, what operating system?

This was one symptom of a nasty virus I contracted. Double click on anything on the desktop, and I got the 'open with' dialog. It also screwed my taskbar.
