Microsoft Office wants to use Microsoft Word as the default HTML editor. I do not want this. I changed the value at

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\htmlfile\shell\Edit\command

However the next time I start Microsoft Word, it is set back to the "bad" value.

Do you mean all HTML files are opening in Microsoft Word instead of in your browser? –  Adam Apr 10 '13 at 1:48

I ran Process Monitor and discovered a registry value being queried

HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Common\Internet\DoNotCheckIfOfficeIsHTMLEditor

If you change the value it will stop this annoying feature

sp hkcu:software/microsoft/office/14.0/common/internet `
  DoNotCheckIfOfficeIsHTMLEditor 1 -t dword
