Try this:

1. Open any file folder or Windows Explorer
2. Click "Tools" in the top menu
3. Click "Folder Options"
4. If MHT and/or MHTML file association exists in the list, delete them.
5. Click "New" button
6. Type "MHT" in the file extension field box
7. Click "Advanced" button
8. Scroll and find listed - "MHTML Document", click it.</li>
9. Click OK
10. Windows File associations create the MHT file association, usually with the correct ICON.
11. Repeat steps for MHTML extension.

Hi kingfishpjd,

To convert the file directly from mht to xls , you can use a simple tool like (All Office Converter ),
another idea , you can use an Excel.Application activex object to open the
mht and save as xls. check out MSDN
http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-au/library/aa213696(office.11).aspx 
Another idea with money is : (SpotOn) Systems provides a solution to automatically convert mht files to Native XLS and is transparent to the Cognos users. For more information you can visit spotonsystems.com
Good luck & let us know what you find out.

Hi kingfishpjd,

Try this also :
Right click on mht file and choose [Open With] =>[Choose Program] , then select Excel ...

It will open the mht in Excel sheet.
