Sounds to me like you either got a .lnk or .exe file association issue.
In either case one of the fixes located here will likely square things away for you

If the problem was the result of some malware I would suggest you set about ridding yourself of that as well. Grab the free version of MalwareBytes here

You have a virus! You need to find someone with a bootable antivirus disk!
