I would simply do a system restore to a day when this was not happening if the OS is Windows XP. You will not lose any data it will simply revert major changes to the OS such as that.

Open my computer, click tools, file types. Then you can change what opens files.

If your equation requires either a complex combination of variables to get the desired result OR you can't seem to get the result regardless of the variables....it ain't your variables, it's your constant.

And if you'd rather not do that for some reason, it's the file associations that are wonky and you will need to change them back to their proper associations.
