How can I make IE 9 save pages by default as html files? I hate mht

Hi, I am aware of this thread but didn't find it helpful: How can i make IE9 save web pages in a default format

So, anyways, is there a registry hack anyone has made for IE 9 that can force IE 9 to stop choosing mht as the default format? I am sick, have been for years, of switching it to htm. It's also noteable that more webpages on IE are able to saved in mht form, rather than htm (and firefox can save any ANY page in either format). It's as if Bill Gates had a mht fetish and decided we should all go by his ways.

I'm using 64 bit windows. Oh and I use the 32 and 64 bit version of IE, so if a script is needed for both, please do make one.

Can you tell us just what OS you are using, you say you are using a 64 bit windows but your system specs says Vista 32 and you're posting in the Windows 7 forum which has nothing to do with Microsoft, who are the ones responsible for making IE9.
