bat-files suddenly associated w. MS WORD - how to get back to normal?
I use a few .bat files to do simple chores, such as copying newly changed
files to a backup folder.
Suddenly these bat-files associate with MS WORD and open there instead of
doing their batch work.
I suspect that maybe some recent Vista updates (they come in droves) are
responsible for this mess.
How do I get back to normal?

You can use the program ExtMan to administer all your data-types, its
very small and doesn't need installing.
Open it, go to .bat, press edit, click on the command "open" and change
the path of Word to -> "%1" %* <-

As a possible work-around you could copy and paste the text of the files
into new batch files. If the new ones work, delete the old ones.

If the problem persists I would suspect your AV program is at fault.
Got Norton or McAfee?

this is what my registry has for '.bat' files, Vista Home Premium, SP2
.........
Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bat]
@="batfile"

[HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\.bat\PersistentHandler]
@="{5e941d80-bf96-11cd-b579-08002b30bfeb}"
..........

the more likely cause is that you at some time forced the use of MSWord as
the default for '.bat' . (MS Word would not be default editor, Notepad would
be the normal edit default).
