    Go to:
    Finder > Preferences > Advanced

    Uncheck "Show all filename extensions"

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).

    Hmmm. Try deleting:
    yourhomefolder/Library/Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist

    This will reset your Finder preferences to the defaults.
