    Program changed file extensions, now I can't run .msi files

    Awhile back I had a video file conversion program that didn't do what it was supposed to do. When I uninstalled it, I discovered it had changed the file extension associations on a whole raft of file types to FFV files, and I can't change the association for a number of them. The biggest problem is that every time the system tries to run an .msi file, it thinks its an FFV file and can't find the executable to run it.

    How do I eradicate the FFV crap and what part of Windows runs the .msi files? I've got a bunch of updates I can't install until this is solved.

    Jwoods, thank you very much for the link. That did the trick, and I saved the Zip file of all the extrension .reg files for future use.
