Windows File Association fixes

On Windows it can happen that some (system) files can not be opened anymore with their default build in application. Such can happen for example after a failed installation of some software application. To easily fix the default file associations, one could use the registry files provided on the site of Doug Knox (for Windows XP).

He provides registry files to fix following file types:

If your EXE file associations are corrupted, it can be difficult to open REGEDIT, or to even import REG files.  To work around this, press CTRL-ALT-DEL and open Task Manager.  Once there, click File, then hold down the CTRL key and click New Task (Run).  This will open a Command Prompt window.  Enter REGEDIT.EXE and press Enter.
