I was trying to look into an Outlook 2007 .pst file with Notepad in Windows 7 HP. Guess what... I didn't uncheck "Always use this program..."
I don't know what to re-associate it with.

Any help would be appreciated.

First, I don't have Windows 7.

What happens when you right click on a .pst file?

Do you get a menu including 'Open with' ?

In XP, you would look for Microsoft Outlook 2007 in the list of installed programs,
select it and check the 'always use' box.

I would have thought it would be something similar in Win 7.

Sorry to be vague, perhaps a Win 7 user can assist further.

No is does not open with outlook.exe. It had a special icon but it's not the one that goes with any of the office programs or outlook. Maybe If I go to the registry and remove the default (which is now notepad) it'll fix itself. I don't want to do that till I get more information though.

I botched the system screwing with the registry, and I restored the Acronis image I saved last night. So, this topic can now be forgotten.
