A while ago I had a problem with my computer whereby it would not start properly. It was eventually determined that the problem was caused by the .vbs file extension association being changed to a text reader instead of wscript.exe, causing our company logon script not to run. I fixed this association and fixed the problem.
But I can't remember how I managed to get into the computer in order to fix it.
Anyway, it looks like the same problem has occured on another user's PC. If I shut down their computer you briefly see the logon script open in notepad - telling me that the system has tried to run it, but it has instead opened in notepad.
I logged into the machine using the local Administrator account and found that the association is already correct, leading me to believe file associations are profile specific rather than machine specific?
Is this true?
And if so, how can I get into the broken profile in order to fix the association?
