    What?

    Are you asking why some file association of yours was changed on your
    system?

    If so - either you did it or allowed it to be changed. Another application
    was installed or malware was installed that made the change.

    Scan your system with MalwareBytes and SuperAntiSpyware (both freeware to
    download, install and use to cleanup) just to be sure it was not the latter.

    How's your backups?
