Changed the file association for batch files and can't remove it

I shot myself in the foot. I changed the file association for .bat files to my text editor and now every time a batch file is called it opens my editor instead of executing it. It was set to nothing. I can't seem to remove the association. I'm running Windows 7. Help!

Have you tried going to the "Open With" dialogue and deselecting the check box for "always use this program"?

If you feel like messing with your registry, which I do not suggest, I have pictures you could use to compare.

cybercore: The tutorial worked its magic. Thanks so much. You were a big help.
