    Rick Corbet - Your method 1 did not work for me, but luckily I managed to extract from it a manual procedure which fixed WORD. There is a complication with Excel and it may take further massaging.

    For over a year, double clicking 'file.cmd' would trigger the correct response. Now, a double-click merely opens it in a text editor. When I try to change the file association, I find that "Always...

    To try and prevent it launching with Windows, I had a look at likely controls IN WLM, but failed to find one. UNticking the WLM and WLSync entries in MSConfig; StartUp tab turned out to be enough. ...
