do these hkey_classes_root keys need to be set (via gpo) once per machine at startup, or per user at every login?

HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT is unique to the computer, and only has to be set once per computer.  Any user who logs in will see the same hive.  The only hives which are unique to users is HKEY_USERS and HKEY_CURRENT_USER

Hope that helps :)

thanks, I have the exact issue in the article, can you see any possible issues caused by editing those reg keys, I don't want to mess up file assoc for jpegs etc.

I have had a look at the article, and even if the solution doesn't work for you (which it will), there is no damage you can cause by applying them.

A reboot may be required to make Windows Explorer pick up the settings change.
