Back to file types

I'm running Win 2000 Pro.  Ever since I installed Paint Shop Pro 9,  the 'file type' column in Windows Explorer shows every kind of non-vector graphic as "Paint Shop Pro 9 image".  I'd like to get back to seeing whether a graphic is .tif or .tga .wmf, etc.  Can I over-ride this Paint Shop pirate?  Thanks,

Why not just turn on displaying file extensions?  Otherwise you'd have to disassociate paintshop with those graphic types and you wouldn't be able to open the files with a simple double-click.

Otherwise, you SHOULD be able to type at a command line:


etc. and this should reset the file associations.
