Re: File Associations
- Hi Ray and Others,
I posted a message over here under this thread the other day.
Some of you may have followed it through the Basic list also.
Anyway, Ray said to post his reply on this list if I thought it
may be of use to somebody. I think it may be, at least sooner or
later. ;) Thanks, Ray!
Thanks for the personal email. I also saw the copy on the OT Group.

Based on your suggestions, I gingerly edited my registry. This
is the very first time I have ever made any manual changes to the
registry. I'm amazed to see that it is 12 megabytes!
I am using Norton's SystemWorks 2000. It includes a registry
utility that permits multiple backups of the registry, and it
also permits easy searching for text in the registry. I used it
to find and delete all references to NoHands*.*
I also discovered that I had more than one association for TXT
files. In Explorer File Types, I removed all associations for
TXT and LOG. I then used that same screen to add new
associations for LOG and TXT that all point to NTP using the NTP
The result is that newly created TXT files and LOG files show a
proper Swiss flag icon. Problem solved. Reboot wasn't even
I never would have edited the registry if you hadn't encouraged
me to do so. Thank you for that.
If you think others would benefit from this exercise, please
forward this to the OT Group.
Thank you again *big time*.
