Vista dll file associations RRS feed

  • Question

  • Someone tried associating a single dll file with an open with application (adobe) and as a result all dll files have the icon of that program and I can't find a way to undo the association. How do I put back the application extension so it points to the operating system please? For the record, I know how to change it to a different open with program, but the choice I would need is not there to my knowledge. Thanks...

  • goto regedit


    HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\dllfile\DefaultIcon right panel default value must be imageres.dll,-67


    set it

    then once icons reloaded dll file will revert default icon
