File Associations
I have a program that is associated with 2 file types; FLV and SWF, and I
want to remove the program from these file types. Obviously I can't remove
it from the associated files list directly (since there is no 'Delete' button
next to the 'Change program' button. The program in question is a portable
application, and therefore doesn't require installation.

I assume I would have to go into my registry to remove the file associations.
Where do I go to sever the program from these file types without corrupting
the registry?

Re: File Associations

Hello,

This tutorial can help show you how to unassociate these to have them
not associated with any program to opened by default.
