    Utility to restore all IE file types? (WinXP Pro XP2)

    Instead of launching Windows Explorer's File Types tab, going from file type to file type, is there a utility (or DOS command / batch file) which when run will restore all relevent Internet Explorer file types to their default?

    Take a look here. I think that the file you are looking for can be had from the link after this sentence. "You can download a BAT file (zipped) that will restore all of the "default" associations that XP ships with. It will not restore those file associations created by 3rd party applications."

    For a complete list of file association fixes take a look here. HTH
