Wondering if anyone knows how to set the default 'option' of the "Open
With" box to have this box UNchecked:

Always use the selected program to open this kind of file

By default in windows 7 this is checked. I have found docs online to
completely remove the checkbox or have it greyed out, but I would like
to have the option still there, just not checked by default.

We have had a couple different users somehow set all .exe's on their
computer to open with something like adobe..............sigh.

Is this what you're looking for?

Looks like you have to download a registry file, but you can look at
that before installing it, to make sure there's nothing hinky in there.

So my response to Susan's comment is...

That is what I'm looking for, but it looks like a dll needs downloading
as well as modifying the registry. That is not a deal breaker, mind
you, just something else to investigate. :-)

Here's one where it looks like you can create your own DLL:
