The release notes on FileTypesMan looks promising, as does the tool itself. I'd upvote your comment and answers - but apparently I have too little rep in SU. :P

comment what purpose does HKCU\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\explorer\fileexts serve?
Hmmm... maybe I need to ask this (again) over on SO. It's one of those cross-over questions which have valid aspects in programming domain and in sys-admin domain. I am a programmer, but this affects me both as a programmer and as a sys-admin - with helping clients figure out what went wrong, or even just in my personal use of my PCs. Seems to me that - at an anecdotal level - this has gone to hell in a handbag since Vista, and I yearn for a white paper describing everything there is to know (both as admin and developer)

This worked for me (or appears to have so far) - MSI Z68A-GD55-G3 + Crucial C300 256 SSD

comment Windows 7 - Remote Desktop - multiple credentials
Just wanted to say that this new behavior (only allowing the possibility of saving one set of credentials per login per target machine) is incredibly obnoxious. Leave it to MS to gimp their OS whenever and wherever possible, and call it 'progress' ;(
