For the second time my new "txt" file type has gone astray when right clicking the desktop, and the relevant icon changes to a weird printer icon.

I searched forums a while ago and some kind soul found the solution to correct my problem. Now I cannot find the answer or the forum. It was a registry addition that fixed the problem.

Is there anybody out there that knows the solution again? And why this has happened to me again?


I have a Dell with Windows XP Pro with SR2, Pentium 4, 2.8Ghz and 1gig Ram.

Thanks.
