    Hey Brink,

    I don't know if you remember but I had that problem with my downloads having the extension changed from .BAT to .DOWNLOAD.

    I was wondering if there might be an addition to this list of .BAT files?

    I have eliminated Anti-Virus as the cause, and I am pretty sure I eliminated my browser.....which is Chrome.

    I tested by shutting down AV and downloading the files. Still being re-named
    I uninstalled Chrome, all settings and re-installed. The only thing I did was save my bookmarks.

    I am still having the problem of renamed files. They respond to me renaming them .BAT, but I would prefer to restore association.

    Is there a way to restore ALL associations at once? I am getting lost in so many tutorials.

    Thanks Brink, I appreciate all your help.

    **EDIT**
    Just went back into the list and found bat option . I don't know if I missed it before, or if you added it but either way thank you, and I am going to see if this will get rid of this trivial, but annoying problem.

    Hello Jay,

    Unfortunately this is not a bad association problem that is renaming the .bat file extension to .download. My guess is that may be some sort of security setting in Chrome that is the cause. As a test, try downloading the .bat file using Internet Explorer or Firefox to see if it renamed using them.

    I think my Windows 7 (32bit) registry is screwed. Your .msi reg fixed my .msi problem. I still have issues with .msp It is not recognized and has no file association by Windows 7.

    Can you post a reg fix for .msp?

    Thanks a million!

    Hello Mellow, and welcome to Seven Forums.

    The default MSP file associations download has been added. I hope that it helps you. :)

    Yes, checked IE. It works fine with IE. But not Chrome.

    Just a weird bug I think because I have completely removed then re-installed Chrome and the problem still persists. It's just some bug I guess.

    The files work fine if I just rename them and .BAT is the only extension I have come across that does this so far.

    Weird.

    Thanks though

    It may a deliberate security mechanism in Chrome to prevent malicious software from executing.

    That's what I kinda thought and I have been told, but other potentially hazardous files like .exe I have no problem downloading with Chrome. Curious to what I could do to remedy it, or even where to start looking.

    Any ideas?

    I don't use Chrome, so I do not know. I would try going through every option, setting, or add-on in Chrome to see if there may be one for this. If not, then it may just be hard coded to do it and cannot be changed.
