How do I get correct file association for *.hta files

Currently in CMD on "ftype htafile" I get:  htafile=NOTEPAD.EXE %1.
As the result some video tutorial files can't play.
If I'm correct - it should report:  htafile=C:\WINNT\System32\mshta.exe "%1" %*
What should I do to correct this problem?
Also what should be the correct file association for *.hta ?

Find an hta file on your hard drive. Shift right click and select Open With. Tick always use and navigate to C:\WINDOWS\System32\mshta.exe. OK. Should be fixed.

Note: The .hta fix (in the above link) for Windows XP also works in Vista.

The File Association Fixes from http://www.dougknox.com/xp/file_assoc.htm solved the association issue.
However, FranklinCovey Goals Wizard movie in Outlook still does not load: "This program cannot display the webpage". Any idea why?
