if you want something like that, winpatrol is free:

If you find a good solution and become attached to it, the solution may become your next problem.

thank, kimmchii, i'll try out winpatrol also.

associatethis looks the most powerful app but i'm almost sure i've tried both of these programs a few years ago - i obviously didn't feel the need for them back then.

 :) I've been using Registry Key Backup to save my settings.

Just tell it what keys you want backed up, give them a name, add Regsitry Key Backup to your startup folder and add -AUTOBACKUP to the command line, and you'll never lose those settings again!



The only problem is that it isn't listed on www.moonsoftware.com any more, but you can still download it using http://www.moonsoftware.com/files/Registry_Key_Backup_123.zip.

Please stop by my site at  1 Hour Software by skrommel  for downloads and more info.

Sorry to reopen this topic, but a program called Association Manager (by Alexander Peckover), which no longer has a website and hasn't been updated since 2000, seems to fit the bill. You can save your current associations, manage them, and create "association group files". ie. you can have one association set for audio/video playback and another for editing.

One download site: http://www.freedownl...ciation_Manager.html

I`m a firm believer in the philosophy of a ruling class, especially since I rule.

I like and use RegShot but also Doug Knox has an excellent set of routines to re-associate the defaults.

That said, the easiest way, particularly if you are going to uninstall the app, is to roll back with an Image Backup, using Acronis or Image for DOS/Windows

...a program called Association Manager (by Alexander Peckover).

pfeerick - The download link doesn't work from that site... here is one that does Associate v1.3a

BUT, from the readme...

Quote from: the readme
I do not claim that this will work at all on Windows NT - In fact, please do not use it on Windows NT.

Since XP is based upon NT, I am hesitant to use this. I did try it on one file type, and when I tried to apply the changes, the program crashed / simply vanished.
