    Hi Ramesh,

    This is a request to change your handle (to "Ramesh Kumar MVP" or something
    else instead of "Ramesh MVP") so people know "Ramesh Srinivasan" and "Ramesh
    Kumar" are two different persons. Pls note that I've already changed by
    newsgroup handle to reflect my full name.

    What kind of file was the attachment that was sent to you? An EXE file or
    some other kind? What I'm looking for is whether it's just one extension or
    more than one that are affected.

    In my e-mali I mreceived an attachment that was .DOC I tried to open
    attachment and was told that nothing was specified to open this file. I
    tried to go to the "set associations control panel" but could not figure out
    how to associate a program with Outlook Express which is my e-mail

    But now *all* of your associations, or at least some major ones, are messed
    up?

    In response to your earlier stat3ement about not being able to run virus
    scanners and such, that's true. I wasn't thinking, and if it comes down to
    it, you may need to use BartPE or similar to run them from a CD or DVD boot.
    Meanwhile, you should actually be able to run REG files directly (or, the
    correct term is "Merge" them) without the association being intact.

    Here is a REG file that will do the more drastic action Ramesh recommended
    and delete your entire UsersChoice key for the EXE extension.

    Download this to your Desktop, right-click and Unzip to Here. Or download
    and unzip it on another machine if you have to, and figure out some way of
    getting it onto your Desktop. My guess is a USB flash drive would work best,
    unless autorun is messed up. (There are lots of tricks to try, but I don't
    feel like explaining them unless you need them, and I'd need to test many,
    just to make sure they work before I pass them on to you.
    http://grystmill.com/shared/FileExts.zip

    Once the REG file is on your Desktop, right-click and Merge. If you can't
    figure out how to get the REG file onto the Desktop, we'll work on that one.
