If you search BleepingComputer.com, you would find many such cases like yours along with the solutions.
Here is a recent post and the solution was provided by hamluis : http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/303590/xp-file-problem/

One more way to fix basic file associations is to run the RKill tool developed by Grinler.
http://download.bleepingcomputer.com/grinler/rkill.exe

The tool will not run as exe file associations are corrupt. To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, and click New Task (Run). Browse to RKILL.EXE and click OK.
