I have a user that somehow associated her .epf file to Acrobat.  I cannot find a way to associate it to Entrust Entelligence Login Service, so I thought the easiest solution was to delete the file association.  I haven't been able to do that either.
I'd appreciate your help.
Thanks.

You should be able to do this via the Registry.  By deleting the association in the registry, windows should prompt you for the new default.  As always .. make a backup of the registry in case anything goes wrong.

If only it were that simple.  I tried that, but couldn't find the Entrust association anywhere.

Thanks.  I'll try that.  She's left for the day, so I'll look for it tomorrow.
