You have to go into the registry and change the file association. Start>Run, type in regedit, hit OK, expand HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT, look for the file type in question, expand it until you find something like open with Notepad, don't remove the Key, just modify it by removing Notepad from between the quotation marks.

Ya got me, but somehow you have to either edit the registry or find a way to change the file association. You may be able to view file types in folder options and change it there. Hopefully someone will come along with the right way.

Nope.. you have it already Tyger.. If they can't get into Regedit then their only option would be through Folder Options>File Types!!
