All Files Launching With Java?

I recently tried to open a single file with java, and now ALL my files open with it. They also have a java icon on them and a extension that my kindle spell check refuses to let me type an is like "link". People have had this problem before with other programs being run but never with java that I have seen, any help?

    Hi :)

    How are you sure ?

  5. I'm sure I don't have a virus because I only visit very trusted websites and parts of youtube? The most untrusted website I've visited recently is Tiger Direct.

    Hi :)

    Nice in theory, but WHICH AV are you running and WHICH Firewall ?

  7. Please stop that, it's getting on my nerves. All the other situations I saw were not virus based. It's also only on one profile.

    If it's not a virus, there are 2 ways to do it.

    1) Right click (or shift +right click, depend on window version) on the file and choose "Open With". Then select "Choose Program..." and tick the check box "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file" and choose the program that you want that file type to associate it with in the future.

    2) Go to window explorer, select "tools" > "Folder Options...". Select "File Types" tab and edit which extensions that you want to associate with which program.

    Hi :)

    Absolutely and precisely correct.... and if those two do not work, it IS a virus...
