After doing todays - April 3 CC updates: when double clicking a .psd .tif .jpg .psd file in bridge, it tries to open file in After Effects.
The file associations are set properly in Bridge, yet when I double click on a .psd file in bridge, it opens After Effects. Funny part, todays updates didn't affect bridge or photoshop, but after effects was one of the programs ( one of ten ) that were updated today. 

*Edit, I just did todays updates to my laptop as well, same OS. Same problem !!

Its looking like a problem with AE and the workaround is disabling the AE script in Bridge preferences. I've already seen several reports.

Sorry for the trouble with file association and AfterEffects!
This has been fixed in subsequent updates to Bridge and AE, more info at the top of this article: https://helpx.adobe.com/after-effects/using/whats-new.html
