Windows® XP File Association Fixes
Copyright 2003 - Doug Knox
The files listed here are all ZIP files, which contain a REG (Registry) file. Download the ZIP and open it. Extract the REG file to your hard disk and double click it. Answer yes to the import prompt. REG files can be viewed in Notepad. Each of the REG files contains the default settings for the file extension indicated. For the ZIP file fix, the download is a REG file, since ZIP's aren't working anyway!
NOTE: If your EXE file associations are corrupted, it can be difficult to open REGEDIT, or to even import REG files. To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager. Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run). This will open a Command Prompt window. Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter.

Easy File Associations for Windows XP
Tired of hunting around in File Types to re-associate your files? Here's an easier way to re-associate your files to the Windows XP defaults.
Download the fileassoc.txt file here (you may want to right click and select Save As). Look up the file extension that you wish to correct. The entries are in the format of:
Use your mouse to copy the line for the association you wish to restore. Then click Start, Run and enter CMD A Command Prompt window will open. Right click in this Window and select Paste. Then press Enter.
You can download a BAT file (zipped) that will restore all of the "default" associations that XP ships with. It will not restore those file associations created by 3rd party applications. The BAT file can be downloaded HERE.
Note: This does not repair a damaged association. If the "exefile" (.exe) Registry key in HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT has been modified to run ABCDEF.EXE rather than EXPLORER.EXE for executable files, then EXE files will still run with ABCDEF.EXE. This command only restores the Default association for the file type.
