What Operating System is this on?

You can remove the association in XP by doing the following:

Open Windows Explorer.
From the Tools menu, select Folder Options.
On the File Types tab scroll down to the extension you what to de-associate (PPD, I think).
Delete the Association by highlighting the entry and pressing the Delete button.

If you need to change it rather than delete it, then highlight the entry and press the Change button and browse for the program.

If it's Vista, then it's much more difficult.

Can't you get back into PDFCreator's General Settings > General Settings 2 again to uncheck the option?

Sorry to ask more questions rather than answering yours, but we need to know something else.

What program DID open PostScript files BEFORE the change, and are you talking about *.ps and *.eps file types?

My thinking is that within THAT program you may find the options to restore the file associations to it again.

In asked a question that has not yet been answered:
"What program DID open PostScript files BEFORE the change, and are you talking about *.ps and *.eps file types?"

If we knew that, I am sure that we would be able create a *.reg file, a batch script, or give instructions for a manual registry change in Regedit to change the associations to the program.

If you (Kanewong) do not know what program those file types were associated with before clicking the "Associate PDFCreator with PostScript Files" in PDF Creator, or if he does not know what program he wants those file types to open with, then it leaves us all guessing about what he really does want us to suggest.

I my opinion Netman66 gave a satisfactory solution to (a) void the existing file association and (b) associate with a desired program.

Some feedback would have been courteous and less abrupt.
