|Permanently Remove Check Mark In Always Use This Program--- |
The following trick worked in W98SE to permanently remove the check mark in the "Always use the selected program to open this kind of file".
I messed up tonight and associated a .dsc file(dscrypt) with Adobe Reader.
I couldn't get it to disassociate from AR with the Default Programs, so I found the registry entry and deleted it with a backup, just in case. All is well now but I want to get that check default check mark out before I mess up again sometime.
UNCHECK OPEN WITH
"This tweak permanently unchecks the "Always use this program to open this file type" checkbox on the "Open With" dialog
box, when opening a non-associated file type. Run Regedit and go to:
Add %2 to the current "Default" value as shown here:
C:\WINDOWS\Rundll32.exe Shell32.dll,OpenAs_RunDLL %1 %2
Close Regedit and press F5 to refresh the Desktop."
If you have a problem associating a file after this tweak go to this link for important info:

I found this same registry key in Vista and added the %2 and restarted but it didn't have any effect on the check mark.
Does anybody have a solution?
