unable to create file associations

Bit weird this.

In windows 2000 (terminal server, but I doubt that's the problem).  Logged in as administrator.

I had a problem that associated files were being opened in notepad, instead of the associated application.  I fixed this (some program had defined HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Notepad\command=notepad %1)

while troubleshooting this problem, I noticed that all options in "folder options"/"file types" are greyed out. i.e. I can't change or add associations.

any idea what would cause this behaviour?!

Change terminal services in Remote administration. Then is works. After the change go back to Application Server mode.
