You can do file associations with the new Group Policy Preference
extensions available from Microsoft. Either that or use Computer Startup
Script policy to import a .reg file to fix the association.

Subject: [gptalk] Associate file types with programs


I found that MS Office SP3 breaks the association between .tif files and
MS Document Imaging. MS's solution is for each user to go in and and
re-create the association in tools>Folder Options>File Types. This is
not practical with our Citrix invironment, because users can't even see
those file options through their published applications, and I don't
want them to either. Has  anyone encountered this? It seems like a GPO
solution should be available.
