You did exactly what you said you did: you deleted the association from the file properties.
If you want to delete a file rather than its associations, you can do this in either File Explorer or in Total Commander (which I recommend over "Tool Commander") by tapping-and-holding on the file you want, then selecting "delete" from the menu that pops up.
In Total Commander, you can also select the file by tapping it once, then tap the "File" softkey in the lower left and select "Delete" from the pop-up menu. That's way less complicated than what you did.
I might be able to help you re-associate the .cab files properly.
First, get a copy of Total Commander and install it if possible. This may not be possible if .cab associations have been deleted.
Then navigate to a cab file. It doesn't matter which one. Tap-and-hold and select "Properties" from the pop-up. Go to the "Associate" tab then click the "Associate..." button.
Fill in the boxes as follows:
Parameter: "%1" /nodelete
Icon file: shellresapps.dll
Hit "OK" twice to get out and save the settings and you should be good to go.
