video_ts.ifo dat file changed into notepad file!!

Help me!!

By accident I have opened  a video_ts.ifo  file which is a windows dat file  in notepad.
As the flag was on "always open with"  all my ifo files have changed into notepad.
How do I change them all back to the original.
I have tried to open them again with Appfix Apphelp installer but that gives an error.
because of this I can't burn the VIDEO_TS map as a whole anymore.

try installing IfoEdit from here: http://www.doom9.org/index.html?/mpg/ifoedit-dvdauthor.htm. If this doesn't replace notepad, then hold shift & right click a .ifo file and select IfoEdit as the "always open with" program.
Try this, Open My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>File Types
and then click on New
type .IFO and click OK
close the windows and restart the system
now check if .ifo files are registered back or still associated with Notepad ?
Good Luck :)
