    I suggest you post yourq uestion on the Parallels forum, as it's their software you're having issues with:  http://forums.parallels.com

    That is a simple WIndows setting you need to adjust.  Your Parallels seems to have changed the default "open with" program in your windows installation.  The way to fix it depends upon your version of Windows, but you can probably get there my holding down teh shift key and clicking the right mouse button on the file you are trying to open.  Doing that should add a new line to the right-click menu "Open with..." select that and in the pop-up select your windows app you want to use, and check the checkbox to make it the default app for that file extension.
