I downloaded pcsx2 .9.6 and it won't even let me start it up. It shows up with a mass effect 2 screen and the icons all have mass effect 2 symbols. how did it get it confused and how can I turn it back.
Right click>>Properties>>change>> any of 7 zip, winrar, winzip, etc
Wait wait wait, I have to be reading this wrong.

Your PCSX2 comes up with Mass Effect 2 icons? That's 7 different kinds of messed up. Are you sure you got it from the official PCSX2 site?

Otherwise all I can think of is if ME2 associated itself with the .7z extension, confusing Windows. Forcing it to open with the appropriate program (as described by CKL) should fix it for the moment, but that's still really screwed up.

Either way screenshot it, this I want to see Tongue
Mass effect 2 seems to mess up some zip files icon, but it shouldn't change anything other than the icon showing the Mass Effect symbol. I got some of mine changed when I had the game installed though I can't remember whether they were 7 zip files or not. It was actually quite interesting.
For me, more filetypes got changed into "mass effect-ed" icons when I installed it.
CKL's right, simply force the file you got to open into 7-zip
