    Hi Brink,

    Recently I was trying to show someone how to extract some .pack files from WinRar when I accidentally set all of my own .pack files to open with UTorrent. Now, all of the files have have the UTorrent icon, but they are still .pack files. I have tried multiple things to fix this but nothing has worked. I had this same problem once before on my iMac (running bootcamp) but I was able to just restore it back to a few minutes earlier before it happened. However, on this laptop my restore point was for some reason defaulted to "off", so I have no way of restoring it to a clean backup.

    Any help with this would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,
    Jeremy

    If you like, downloading and merging the .reg file below will unassociate PACK files for you.

    Hi Brink. Can you do one for .bin files?

    I associated it with notepad by accident. Then after reading online about this I tried the suggestion to change the association of a bin file to a nonsense file and then deleted the nonsense file but now in "choose default apps by file type" it just shows an empty blue square next to .bin instead of "choose a default".

    Hello @tomseys, :)

    I have added "bin" to Option Two to help.
