    Oh. I never knew that was an actual problem, I just thought that was how Explorer worked, I've always had that icon next to "Open"... Well, another tutorial to follow

    I managed to disassociate most of my program files from their default file type. I attempted to use the method provided to fix it, however I did not see results. Luckily, I was able to find a restore point and resolve the issue. I'm curious, however, of the following:
    • Could "merging" any of the provided files affect my registry negatively?
    • Does a system restore point override any of the aforementioned registry changes?
    Please advise.

    Thanks!

    Hello expone, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    I'm glad to hear that you got your issue sorted.

    The .reg files in the tutorial will only restore default registry entries, so no worries about anything negative.

    A system restore will restore the registry back to how it was when the restore point was created, so it will undo anything changed after the date of the restore point. Since all is well now, you have nothing to worry about.

    Hope this helps, :)

    Brink,

    I'm hoping you can help me. I accidently changed the default file type for aspx files for my work computer. I cannot merge the reg files because I do not have administrator access. The program used to have the "Windows Shell" as default. Do you know the location of that? If so, I can manually fix this issue.

    Any help would be appreciated,

    Hello Bill,

    Go ahead and merge the .reg file for the listed .aspx option in the tutorial. It will not fully merge since you are not an administrator, but it will restore the defaults for your account in the "Current User" location of the registry. :)
