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.

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.
