hi all, on a windows 2003 terminal server, is there a way to set a group policy where .Tif files are opened with the Windows Pic and Fax Viewer??  We've got a custom app that changed the program to open TIF's to itself, but we need to override this, and I would rather not reset the file type for each user individually.  The custom app cannot be uninstalled.

thanks in advanced

GPO doesnt offer this by default

if you know the reg keys you want to hit you can make a custom ADM template for GP

you can use the NUTS package to help you
