Last night, I tried to open a program, and it asked me to choose another program to run it with. So I had accidentally clicked Iexplorer.exe. Now, all of my software tries running on the internet, so every time I click something, it tries to open an internet page and then it closes and asks me to save, run, or cancel. I'm not really sure how to reverse it, and I don't really feel like wiping my hard drive. Does anyone have a solution for me?

Have you tried 'System Restore' using a Restore point before you made the change?
If you didn't create a Restore Point or System Restore doesn't fix it you can try this app:

Use this at your own risk as I have never tried it. Supposedly, it restores all of the File Associations to their global settings.
