I was changing file association for some random format(not exe) and it for some reason changed exe file association. So now my computer cant start anything and all exe files has the icon of that app i changed association to. Upon restart it bluescreens with Kernel exception in ntsf but i can't open [language] bluescreenviewer taskmgr or anything. I read multiple people with same problem, the thing is that it didnt woork for me at all.
Ive did ftype thing and fileassoc. Neither helped. How can stupid windows10 even allow such thing to happen??? modern os my ass. Thx in advance for reply!

Things i tried:
assoc .exe=exefile

Is this registry file code safe to do ? I don't want to screw things more than they already are
