Icon and Cursor Files Association !!

Ok one more question :|

I installed ACDSEE 6.0 and it associated all icon and cursors files to it.
And when i un-associated it in the ACDSee Tools>File Association, My all cursors and icon files turned into default windows logo file icon.
When i right click them, i don't get OPEN, instead that i get OPEN WITH...
I know if i go to My Computer>Folder Options>Files Types
I can register icon and cursor files to get them back to default settings and association.
But they are already present there in the file types.
So when im adding icon and cursor files it is saying that it is already registered.

So my question is that, Can i delete the already registered icon and cursor files types, and then re-enter them to register them again.
Coz when i tried to delete them from the list i got the Warning, that if u delete them u will not able to open these types of files in future.
And i thought i should ask some experts before doing any "DANGEROUS" thing with My Computer =)

!! REGARDS !!

Repairing corrupted Icons

First

Right click your destopr and select Properties.
Select the effects Tab.
Tick "Use Large Icons"
Click OK / Apply.

If this does not rectify the problem,
(NOTE for this to work you need to be able to see hidden files and folders)

Press CTRL+F to open a search box.
search for ShellIconCache (or if your Windows XP Iconcache.db )
When you locate it - Delete it.
Reboot the PC and the file will be recreated.

OR

Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows Millennium Edition, Windows 98 or Windows 95 can use TweakUI to repair Icons

is it Really an ICON problem ??

U know when we got Mouse pointers and click on browse, we get all the cursurs and animated icons
we don't get any specific ICON with them.
We can see which cursur or icon is that.
Now i can't see those icons
If i unassociate with ACDSee, i get Windows default logo files
Otherwise i get ACDSee default icon !!

How can i set my cursors, icons and ani files back to the riginal settings
so that i can see them when i browse the Cursor folder ??

Once i installed Autocad, and it took all my *scr files (screen savers)
So i had to add a NEW file extension entry in the Files Types to register the screen savers files.
and it worked.
But this time the cursors (*cur) , animated cursors(*ani), and icon(*ico) files are already present there, so i can't add them again !!

My only problem is that, im not sure if i delete the already present *cur, *ani, and *ico files form the Registered files type list :-(
So that i can add them again to register them again !!

Sorry to say that, but none of the above comment or suggestion helped me out :-|
My problem was not the ICONS, but my all themes icons cursors and animated cursors were not coming originally, instead of that they were coming as Associated Files with ACDSEE.
and after unassociating them from ACDSEE, windows was not recognising them !!!

So i went to the Microsoft site and searched there for cursor and icon files association fix.
And i found this software there >> http://www.irfanview.com

So i downloaded it and now everything is Fine :)
All my cursors and icons are back again in their original shapes !!

Thanx for the input anywayz, but i would like to close the thread now :-|

!! HAVE A NICE DAY !!
