On Win98/IE4, modify the following key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced, value HideFileExt
Set value to 0 to show file extensions
Set value to 1 to hide file extensions

On Win95/IE3, modify the following key :
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer, value ShellState
Set 5th octet of value to 3 to show file extensions
Set 5th octet of value to 1 to hide file extensions

Do you need some source code to modify these keys ?
