Reinstalling 2.5 should work.

When you install any Python on Windows with the .msi installer, there is
a box something like
[x] make this the default Python on this machine.
You apparently did not notice to uncheck it.
You could reinstall 2.5. You should be able to directly change the file
association between .py/,pyc and 'open', but I do not know how in Vista.
Try the help system or wait for another answer ;-)

PS. What you call the 'dos prompt' is now called a 'Command Prompt'.
There is no DOS on nt/xp/vista.
