    Juan,

    Yeah, you'll need to restart the computer after merging the .reg file I posted above to apply it same as in tutorial. :)

    Hi Shawn,

    it worked like a charm and I also removed the string in ;

    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\sup_auto_file\shell\read\command

    It appears it still had the string for adobe acrobat reader.

    I now have the blanc notepad like icon again, thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!

    Juan.

    Hi -

    A friend of mine recently asked me to fix a broken keyboard on her laptop running Win 7 Home Premium. In checking it out, I found that the default programs for many file types were incorrectly set to Notepad. Using the Zip file collection of fixes from Brink's tutorial. I was able to fix most of them. A most sincere Thank You.

    However, three Security Certificate extensons, .cer, .crt and .der, which should use Crypto Shell Extensions, remain associated with Notepad. I don't know how significant these are as in the short time I have had the computer I don't believe I have seen any issues related to this. If you can help, it would be most appreciated.

    Finally, between your great tutorial and studying the reg files in your zip collection, I have started to gain some insight to the workings of the registry. Thanks again.

    Hello Don, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    The default .cer, .crt, and .der registry entries have been added. Hope they help. :)

    Hello, I had a problem that all my files and programs opening a ms word document format then I read the instructions and downloaded the extension types and I merged all the 105 extension files on my computer and I restarted the computer it was back to normal, I really appreciate this help but Are these secured extension files that I have merged in my computer, please let us know so that we can take precautions before we go head with our computer? I have some personal files on my computer so is there any hacking personal files from my computer? Why I am asking this because I am new to this forum and I don't have much knowledge, I just saw the instructions, downloaded the extension file types and merged in my computer? I am sorry If I am saying anything wrong. It is just for clarification.

    Thanks for all your help.

    Hello Stalin, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    I'm happy to hear that they were able to help you.

    First, I would strongly recommend in the future that if you are not sure of the safety of or have questions about a download, you should ask about them or scan them first before installing/merging on your computer so you will be safer.

    The downloads in this tutorial are 100% safe to use though. They will only restore the default Windows registry entries for the file extension that the download is for.

    Hope this helps, :)
