    Re: default .ico settings

    I installed ACDSee and I couldn't restore the ico settings. In Win WXP i could select the filetypes I wanted to register, in Vista they were selected and I couldn't deselct them

    LunaSanctus,

    If you just wanted to unassociate the ICO file extension, then this will show you how to.

    Unassociate File Extention Type

    However the link above should be able to restore the defaul ICO associations.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn
