That's right, this annoying piece of crap bloated software messed up my file associations and I don't know how to restore them! I have already uninstalled Nero. One example is with video and image files. ICO files are now named something like nerophotosnap.type1.ico instead of just .ico and also unlike before I am unable to see the atual icon when I set my view mode to "Icon", it just shows the default file icon. How do I reset it so that it shows the actual icon image of the icon file? Would appreciate some help with all of this.
