    Go to the top of this page. Click on "Click here to read the entire tutorial".

    Scroll down to "bin Binary file. By default in Windows 7, .bin files are not associated to be opened by a default program." and click on the word bin. All that will do is clear any associations for the .bin filetype.

    Default File Type Associations - Restore


    Cheers Brink. That code worked fine for restoring my .lnk files. I went out this morning thinking I had 6-7 hrs work on the computer, reinstalling everything (Not done a backup yet, oops naughty boy, I'll remember that for the future). When I found your answer I was a tad happier :) and absolutely relieved when it worked first time. I can't believe I reassigned a .lnk file default program to IE9. My mouth dropped when I saw the icons on the desktop and taskbar all change to IE9 icon. lol..... (lol now anyway) Nice one.....

    Shawn, add me to the long list of people these reg hacks have fixed. I posted here:

    Desktop icons all generic except COmputer Network Control Panel

    but the fix was the lnk.reg fix. No idea why but I'm a happy camper. I just wish I'd done more investigation forst.

    Hi. I was wondering if anybody could help me here. Well, my friend was fooling around with his computer, and he accidentally right clicked an exe file through the start menu, and changed the default program to open with Windows Photo Viewer. So, as of then, he was unable to open any .exe files as Windows Photo Viewer tries to open them. I assumed it was something to do with the .exe registration association. However when I followed the tutorial here and merged with the .exe.reg file that was provided nothing changed ._. Is there anyone who knows a way to fix this?

    *sorry, turns out he edited the .lnk file instead so everything is fine haha. :P
