what all icon become notepad icon

Hi,

I don't know how I did. After I open several oracle file in Windows OS by notepad, most icons on my laptop become notepad icons. I don't know how to fix it. Any one has idea. Even I go into the .exe and create a shortcut, it's still a notepad icon. When I double click the icon, it open as nodepad file, not the program

start menu> default programs.  

Or at this point perhaps a system restore.

now I have to type the program in "Search Program and Files" like typing firefox, mstsc.exe... in there in order to open the program. If I drive the shortcut to the desktop then click on the icon, it will auto open the notepad program, not the porgram I want
