FTP file link association gone funny !
Posted on 2002-04-07
Yesterday I clicked on an ftp link sent me in email and it opened IE6 and went to the ftp server. ( I use windows 98)
Today however, I tried using an old FTP program called W95FTPCOM.exe PRO version, which was once supplied free with Demon Internet services on my old W95 machine. It got accidentally copied over to my new machine. I ran it like an idiot, and now every time I click on any FTP link this old FTP program opens and connects instead of IE6 doing it. There is no uninstall supplied with the old program, though there is an ini file. It doesn't appear on the ADD/REMOVE list in Control Panel so I am wondering how I can stop ftp address links being associated with this out of date program.
I can't find ftp links in the file association lists either.
