It taken over my .js files

I've got a trial of Dreamweaver 4 installed. All .js files now have the DW icon and will not open upon double/single clicking.

I've tried to re-asscociate in Edit/Preferences/File types back to normal but this didn't work.

I've also tried to re-asscociate using Control Panel in XP, that failed too. Then I ran xp_fileassoc.bat which restores to default, but not third party!?.

It's really bad, because I use these javascript files to quick launch explorer to sites I use in my work, so I need to restore them asap.

Does anyone know how?

I reassociated .js files with wscript.exe and that seems to have done it. But the mx icon is still there.

To get the DW icon back do the following:

  • Open "My Computer"
  • Choose Tools > Folder Options
  • Click on File Types tab and scroll down to JS
  • Click on the Advanced button
  • In the Window that pops up click on Change Icon
  • In the next window click Browse
  • Select the path to the dreamweaver .exe file
  • Select the Icon that you want JS files to have
