To repair the mis-association, open a Command Prompt and type:
Press Enter and you should be good to go.


OPTION 2 : Remove the unwanted registry change

Browse to the following registry branch:
Click on the arrow to expand it and delete the sub-key named UserChoice.
Exit from Registry Editor and reboot your machine.
