I've been trying different browsers namely, MyIE2 now Maxthon, and
Mozilla Firefox. I installed and removed both. Now my file associations
for the URL file types are hosed. I attribute this mostly to Maxthon.
I've tried going to the add and remove screen and setting IE as the
default but the file types weren't changed to IE. I thought I saw
a post in that last couple of weeks that had a link to a program or
script that reset all of IE file associations back to the defaults.

Anyone out there able to tell me how to reset all of the URL
associations to the defaults?
