Unassociate file type

Have you ever accidentally set the default program for a default file type and regretted that decision?  Well in Vista, it's pretty easy to change which program is the default for specific file types.  In the Start menu go to Default Programs.  Choose Associate a file type or protocol with a program.  You will be given a list of file extensions and then have the option to change which program launches that file type.

Well, what if you wanted to just delete a file type extension and remove any association with a program.  That is not possible without the help of this utility.  Its called, appropriately, Unassociate.

Its very simple to use.  Find the file extenstion you'd like to delete and choose delete file type.

That's it.
