Changeing what programs open what files under mac os X?

I recently installed Adobe Creative Studio Suite and it has installed Go Live as default.

The problem is si that it has changed the way certain files and web links are opned and what program they are opened with.

Does anyone know how I can change this???

You can select one of the offending files (one that no longer opens in the app you desire), type command-I to Get Info, then select the Open With drop down.  Choose the app that you prefer.  You also have an opportunity to switch all similar documents over by checking the box or whatever for "Make this the default for similar documents" (going by memory here on the wording, it's something similar to that).

You'll have to do this for each class of document: once for html sources, once for PDF files, etc.
